I have accidentally deleted away my master template of my db thus the copy of db on the server its design is hidden.
I got a old backup which I can view the database design n formulas.
I try to do replication and on the local copy, I can go into the design but unable to view the formulas for the action button and other formulas in my database.It gives me -> Formula is hidden.

Anyway can I unhide my formula?
I am using Lotus Notes R6
Pls advise.

Tom, isn't there some dirty trick somewhere to modify the replca-id of a database? If you make a copy of both database, adapt the replica-id of one of the copies to the one of the other copy, so they will be real replica's, and then start the replication process?

Agents and LotusScript cannot be recovered, for only the compiled object is present in the hidden design. Formulas seem to be crypted only.

I'm afraid the answer is indeed: No.

You don't have a replica of the design template somewhere??

There was one old trick of changing the hexa decimal value in R5. If your database be saved as .ns5 andnothing much gets affected, then i believe you can get to an extent.
