Open External Notes Database

Hi Everyone.

I have this code :

Sub UpdRecs()
      
Dim session1 As New NotesSession
Dim session2 As New NotesSession

Dim db1 As NotesDatabase
Dim db2 As New NotesDatabase("U-APPS/KAIT", "MEMBERS.NSF")
      
On Error Goto ErrorHandler

Set db1 = session1.CurrentDatabase
Set db2 = session2.????????????????      

TheEnd
Exit Function
      
ErrorHandler:
Messagebox Trim$ ( Str( Err ) ) & ":" & Error$, MB_OK, "Invalid Action"
Print Trim$ ( Str( Err ) ) & ":" & Error$
Resume TheEnd
      
End Sub

Now I need to open an external database called MEMBERS.NSF so I could extracts records from it. I've already created a view inside MEMBERS called fmMEM_Mon that have all the information I need to export. What should I put instead of the question marks ? I tried and tried, and everytime I just get more confused. How could I reference an external database and a view inside it within current database ?

Many thanks in advance.

Kindest Regards.

dim db1 as notesdatabase
dim db2 as notesdatabase
dim view2 as notesview
dim ss as new notessession

set db=ss.currentdatabase
Set db2 = ss.getdatabase(db.server,"Members.nsf") 'Since both are in same server. If it is local then instead of db.server use "".

set view2=db2.getview("yourbviewInExternalDB")


And if ur thinking u want to display a view (which is in another database) in current database , then this cannot be done.

Just some info: there is only one NotesSession object in memory, just as there is only one NotesUIWorkspace object. The variables session1 and session2 would "point" to the same object, and reflect the same properties etc.
