Hello Experts,
Here's what I'm looking for, I need an agent that will copy the Internet address ($dspInternetAddress) on the NAB into the phonetic name field ($dspAltFullNameSort) on the NAB, however currently the address looks like this firstname.lastname@nnn.companyname.com the nnn needs to go away leaving firstname.lastname@company name.com. Either it needs to be parsed out of the original email address or maybe just copy the firstname.lastname@ and add the companyname.com which ever is quickest and cleanest. All your help is appreciated and as usual I have to have this completed by Thursday 1pm, sorry to all I am not a developer and can use all the help you can provide me. Thanks

Put this in your nab view action and select some documents and see this is what whether you required

      
      
      
      Dim session As New notessession
      Dim db As notesdatabase
      Set db = session.currentdatabase
      Set doccoll = db.unprocesseddocuments
      Set doc = doccoll.getfirstdocument
      While Not doc Is Nothing
            sval = doc.~$dspInternetAddress(0)
            svalafter = Strright(Strright(sval,"@"),".")
            svalbefore = Strleft(sval,"@")
            doc.~$dspAltFullNameSort = svalbefore +"@" +  svalafter
            doc.save True, True
            Set doc = doccoll.getnextdocument(doc)
      Wend

Put this code in a agent, and call the agent from a view action, it will work

step by step of what you have to do

a. create a agent and name it as Fieldmodifier

b. set the agent to run on selected documents

c. go to the view where you need to change the field vlaue

d. create a view action . and give this formula

@command([toolsrunmacro];"Fieldmodifier")

e. save the view action

f. select one document(for time being)      and click on this view action

Hi Partha,
I've followed your instructions to the letter, created the agent, added the action to the view and selected a document and ran it, but the phonetic name field is not being populated

Hi padillrr,

Creata formula agent with the following code:

SELECT @All;
FIELD $dspAltFullNameSort := @Left($dspInternetAddress; "@") + "@companyname.com";

Select a few docs and run the agent from the ACTIONS menu.

Cheers!

Well I've tried them both I like the simplicity of the formula but neither is working, can I be doing something wrong? I tried the LS agent and action button as per instructions with no results the formula agent seems to run but shows no results, I don't see where the form is being put into an edit mode in order to add this information....by the way Thanks for your help, I'm really in need of this.....

I don't see anythign apart from access. Try setting a value in the agent like:

field test :="this is atest value";@success

Partha, I tried the value with no success, I can tell the agent runs, but the results continue to be a blank field under the phonetic name field.....

Hi All, I figured it out, sorry may have been my error on this I used the formula:
SELECT @All;
FIELD $dspAltFullNameSort := @Left($dspInternetAddress; "@") + "@companyname.com";
but deleted the $dsp and it worked....I appreciate the help and will still award the points, but to be fair I will split them between both, is that OK?
