The more I think about this the more I think it is not possible in notes. Is it possible to have a form/dialog that will aloow the user to select critera for the view to search for documents. Example - say the user wants to see all the documents from March 1 2006 to March 20 2006. I feel like notes is a very static system and this request seems more dynamic. I understand that I can setup a view that will show By Month, but this needs to be more open ended that would not require creating a view for every report. The search form could have maybe 2 date fields, a user field and maybe 2 number fields. Then you could search for all documents between dates or all documents for a certain user or all documents between doc 4 and doc 16.
I have not clue if you can do this, that is why I bring it to the Experts :)
