I have multiple .NSF files that I need to delete documents from by using the COM objects from VB6.
I loop the allDocuments folder and delete certain documents by using the "Remove" method.
This works fine except that the deleted documents remains in the Trash folder.
I did see that there is a database property called "Allow Soft Deletions" but cannot seem to access that from outside of Notes.
Any suggestions ? (Please do not suggest Notes agents as I have to do it from VB)
