hello all,

Anyone knows how to solve and the reason of the problem below?

Scenario: I created a document inside my notes db, for example I created "minutes doc" inside the "test.nsf" notes DB. Then the next day when I tried to Access the DB, it was empty..I cannot see the document that I created the other day... but when I copied the DB(test.nsf) to my local and tried to open it, I can see the document. How does it happen?
I assume that I had the read and write access to the document of the db since I am the creator of it.

    Hi There. What Access do you have to the Database? Also, are there Readers fields in the Design of the form that you used to create the document with?

    hi, I already solve the problem.. I think the DB in our notes server is corrupted but when i copied it to my local and try to open it I can read all the contents and documents. After that I place it to the server replacing the old DB and it is already accessible.

    Sounds good.
    Check it tomorrow, and if needed, run fixup and compact -c on it

    I hope this helps !
