Is this possible?

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 :)

Anser: YES this is possible.

My points please...

LOL Sorry, I just had to do that, I have one of those days...

You can do this of course, using a form to specify the field values and FTSearch to search the database. It is very fast and it will give you the relevant documents in the order you specify. The most difficult thing is to assemble the query-string.

Is that what you are looking for?
