guess I should have said, its notes7 i'm using!
Hi jlymn,
only as a picture file (jpeg, gif).

For the purpose of creating image of document the method
    flag = notesDocument.RenderToRTItem( notesRichTextItem )
is used.

Before calling that method call this one:
    Call notesUIDocument.ExpandAllSections
to expand all those twisties.

Hope this helps,

thanks for the link, do you know how i would implement the code? I've not done any notes development before. Do i just need basic notes package and to create a macro somehow?

you need Lotus Notes Client (which you obviously have since you read LN mail) and Lotus Domino Designer (to enter database design - code).
Do you have Domino Designer?

If yes:
Using BitBlt operations you can easily copy selected documents from a view as seperate Word documents.
Make sure you have a field called "Subject" in each document, or modify the call to the CopyScreenRectToWord parameters accordingly.
By default the size of the region is set to 600x600, starting from the corner of the Notes Document content, and you can change this size as needed.

Create an agent called CopyNotesDocumentToWordPicture, and put the agent target as "All Selected Documents":
Const SRCCOPY& = &HCC0020
Const CF_BITMAP& = 2

Dim appWord

Sub Initialize
    Set appWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Dim workspace As New notesuiworkspace
    Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
