Hi all,

I have a response hierarchy in one of my databases. Now while testing I have noticed that when I delete the parent document, all other response and response to response documents linked to that deleted parent remain the database. Is there a way that I can make sure that when a main document is deleted its responses and responses to responses are also deleted?

Thank you

yes..in the database Script, querydocument delete event, u can delete the child documents of the parent.

See the NotesDocument class for deletion and how to get the childs. (I think get responses)

OK, here's a script

Sub DeleteDocument( doc As NotesDocument )
      
      Dim dc As NotesDocumentCollection
      Dim respDoc As NotesDocument
      Dim nextDoc As NotesDocument
      
      Set dc = doc.Responses
      Set respDoc = dc.GetFirstDocument
      
      While Not respDoc Is Nothing
            Set nextDoc = dc.GetNextDocument( respDoc )
            Call DeleteDocument( respDoc )
            Set respDoc = nextdoc
      Wend
Call doc.Remove( True )

end sub

I place the above as a function in the database script section.
Then in the querydocumentdelete of the database script I call the function, but nothing happens.
Is my call to the function incorrect or should this not be in the querydocumentdelete section?



Call deletedocument(doc)

Even when I paste this in view event and call it from the view which has the parent document, i still have no luck.

http:Q_20569942.html "recursivelly marking responses for deletion"

And look at the PostDocumentDelete event in the Database script (under Other/Database Resources)

I'll give this a try.
However, just curious to why my function above did not work. Is the call to the function incorrect?

You might try this:

Sub DeleteDocument( doc As NotesDocument )
     
     Dim dc As NotesDocumentCollection
     Dim respDoc As NotesDocument
     Dim nextDoc As NotesDocument
     
     Set dc = doc.Responses
     If dc.Count=0 Then Exit Sub
     Set respDoc = dc.GetFirstDocument
     Do While Not respDoc Is Nothing
          Set nextDoc = dc.GetNextDocument( respDoc )
          Call DeleteDocument( respDoc )
          Set respDoc = nextdoc
     Loop
     Call doc.Remove( True )

End Sub
