Dear Experts,

My company is running Lotus Domino and Lotus Notes R5 on Windows platform.

I've heard that the Lotus Domino Document Library is like a free add-on.

How do I get this installed?  I cannot find it anywhere.  Do I need to download it?

Yours Sincerely,

    you have the Doc library template (doclibw50.ntf) in your Data folder and all you have to do is click ctrl+n and choose that template in the list of templates (of course, you have to give the name and title to your new db).

    There are actually a few Document libraries, one for general use, one for SM Ofice Docs, and one for Lotus type Docs.

    There should be a list in the help file, look for templates.

    I hope this helps !
