Detaching Attachments from a Notes Database Automatically
Posted on 2004-11-05
I need an automated way to extract attachments (Word docs, PDF, PowerPoints, etcetera) from a Notes Database and put them into a local folder (C:\Attachments for example).
I can manually open the database and detach each attachment one by one, but this takes a long time and I need this to be done on a scheduled basis. The database will continue to be used and the attachments need to be updated regularly (once a day).
I am new to working with Notes, so please provide step by step instructions. From reading a little it seems there must be a way to use LotusScript to do this, but I am not sure where to begin to even start LotusScript. (How does one start a new LotusScript agent? How can I get it to run once a day? Etcetera.) Thanks.
