@NameLookup Oddity

Hi again.

Why are there so many quirks in Notes?

I have this formula in a computed Names field:
 @Implode( @NameLookup([Exhaustive] ; ProjMgrString ; "FullName" ) )

Why is it that, for all buy ONE user, the field populates as desired?  For only ONE user, this field remains blank!

Any idea why?

Thanks, as always.

i believe namelookup is searching only his local names.nsf . Check his location document

Thanks for your help.

So, the assumption would be that under the "Servers" tab, there would be nothing listed for the Domino Directory Server?  Or, what should I be (not) looking for?

I have to do this remotely, that's why I'm asking so many questions.

Thanks again.

HI !

This is straight from notes help database.

***"Searches all Domino Directories listed in the NAMES variable in notes.ini and returns all information in a text list. This keyword returns values from the local Names.nsf database as well as the mail server's directory. "***

Therefore,
It searches the following
1. Your personal address book
2. names.nsf  (address book) on your mail server (server name in the location document -> server tab  -> home/mail server field)
3.  names.nsf  (address book) on your directory server (server name in the location document -> server tab  -> Domino Directory server field)

For example, if you don't find any name in your document -> server tab  -> Domino Directory server field, then
it just searches your personal address book and your mail server.
