Can not Forward/Copy Docs in a Database

I have a database with one form in it.  All docs in the database obviously use that form.  I can not use cut/paste or forward docs in this database.

I know that there's a property on the Form Properties "Security" tag that says Disable Pinting/Forwarding/Copying to clipboard.  This property is NOT checked.

In the database access control list all of the users have CHECKED "Replicate or copy documents".

Database was created on a Lotus Notes 6 server.

Where else do I need to look to allow the cut/paste/forward of documents in this database?  Must be something simple I am missing.

Make a replica and check the settings again.
Try it on a different server.

I would say that either the ACL or more likely the FOrm security is set incorrectly or corrupted.

I hope this helps !

First a correction:
> All docs in the database obviously use that form.
It may sound confusing, but that's not true: you can have documents with any formname in your database. Try to paste a document from a mail database into a test database. A Notes database is nothing more than a collection of documents. You need a form to put document content on the screen. For that purpose, the field Form contains the name of the form that should be used. If there is no field Form in the document, or a form with that name cannot be found, the database's default form will be used. If there's no default form, the document cannot be opened on the screen.

Then, you say
> I can not use cut/paste or forward docs in this database.
a) Why not? What happens? What error messages do you get? You must get something...
b) To cut a document, you need Delete rights in the ACL
c) What do you mean by "forward"?

The Form Property is there to prevent copying from an OPEN document, an on-screen document. It's not checked anyway.

Oh, I forgot. There can be scripts in place that (silently) refuse or remove pasted documents. It's also possible that the view you're in blocks documents being pasted. For the view, look in the QueryPaste and PostPaste events. For the database, see under Other/Database Resources, Database Script, QueryDocumentDelete, to find out if there are special functions present for document deletion.

SysExpert was on the right track.  I went back and CHECKED the properties to "Disable Pinting/Forwarding/Copying to clipboard"...since the database was acting that way anyway.  Nothing changed.  The database responded the same way.  I then UNCHECKED this property.  Pasting, cutting, forwarding all work now.

For sjef bsman:  You are correct of course that you can specify forms that aren't in the DB.  I should have just said there is one form and I checked all docs and they all used that one form.  In regards to error messages, etc nothing happened.  If you tried to cut or paste nothing happened.   It just did not work.  There was no error message.  You could not forward becasue the actions|forward option was not there.

Thanks

Very fishy... The ONLY thing that option does is that it creates a $KeepPrivate field in the document. A DOCUMENT with that option cannot be copied etc. It has got NOTHING to do with what the form indicates. And even when that field is set, Action/Forward is in the list.

I think the database was corrupt somewhere, and that your new replica solved it for you. I hope... :-S

What version of Notes do you use?
