Hi all,

I have a little problem with the exporting embedded view feature.
I have an embedded view in a Form, to show only the documents which belongs to the a particular client (the client name is specified in the Form), though the view actually contains all clients' documents.

However, when I try to export data from the embedded view to Lotus 1-2-3 file & I specify "All documents", the Lotus 1-2-3 file contains all documents of all clients!

How can I just export the documents shown currently, instead of all documents?
Anybody know how to do it?

Thanks very much in advance!

Ah.  Yes.  There are indeed some inconsistencies in the behaviour of embedded views.

I'd say, try first "select all" (Edit/Select All or CTRL-A), and then Export Selected.  If that doesn't work (still gives you all documents), then you'll have to manually select the documents in the embedded view.

cheers,

Tom

What version are you using ?  This behaviour differs a great deal from version to version !
(but I don't think this would be enough reason to upgrade to the latest Notes version :-) )

cheers,

Tom

When you say "All Documents", it does export all docs ;-)

The work around is to select the documents in the embedded view and then do a file export.

Thanks very much for everyone who reply my question. :)

Hemanth, I used your method to select the docs in the embedded view and export, but got a little problem.

My first column is hidden, so fine, it won't be exported out. However, my 2nd column is a Categorised column, but when it gets exported out, the values do not get exported it out too.

Why? I'm using Notes R6.5.

Thanks again, everyone!

Export is not intelligent enought to extrapolate the data... it exports what it sees per row basis. That is why flat views are best for exports
