I don't know if this is possible or not, but here is what I want to do:

I want to create DocLinks in the Parent Document that would resolve to each of its response documents.

The reason I would like to do this is I am sending a doclink of the parent doc to different users to review. I would like them to be able to access all responses from within the parent doc, so they don't have to go to a seperate view.

I would like to do this within the Notes Client.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to carry this off?

Thanks in advance.

Why not create an embedded view which is categorised by a coluimn with @text($ref) (i.e unique ID) and then set single category of embedded view to @Text(@DocumentUniqueID).  

This will show embedded view of each child document of the parent.

i.e. view selection formula is

SELECT (form="response1":"response2")
Col1. is sorted, categorised and is @Text($ref);
Col2 - x are what you want to show in the view.

Embed the view in the main form and set the category property of the view to @Text(@DocumentUniqueID);

Hope thats a bit clearer, if not ask!

Thanks for the quick response.

For those that use this solution in the future, the only two glitches I ran into was that I had left the default selection of "Display response docs in a hierarchal format" checked. This caused nothing to be displayed in the view. Also, I was using alias form names in the selection criteria of the view. Once I got rid of aliases, all displayed like a champ.

Thanks again.
