Hi Experts
According to Lotus Notes help you need Designer access to be able to save and re-use a search in a Lotus Notes database.
Does anybody know a work-around which can allow editors to save and re-user searches?
Thanks
Trevor

You could develop your own: store the search-string in a document and create some interface (e.g. a DialogBox) to the user to handle these searches, including activating one. The results of the search could be displayed with a NotesNewsletter, or in a reserved folder. It does require some coding, but then you could adopt the same functionality in other databases as well. Or put it up for one of the 'tool of the month' contests...

Implicitly saying "Nope, there is no other way", or better "I don't know any other way to do this".

Accepted (with a heavy heart), since nobody else has made a suggestion

I will suggest to the user to make a private view instead of using search. In future we will try to index it via Sharepoint, use Google search or something, since Notes unfortunely doesn't offer this simple option

Sjef DID give you a solution using custom search routines taht you coudl ave followed up on.

In addition, there was a recent post that showed how to use a SendKeys interface to conduct a "saved search"
