Bill-Hanson Follow-up PostOpen db

I posted a question yesterday and you helped me resolve it. Below is the answer you gave.
When I tested it again, it made my notes shut down and an error on the left bottom said "Error, Script is Busy".  No other code was added to the db, this is the only one in it. Thanks in Advance.
Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidatabase)
Call Source.Close
Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
Call workspace.OpenDatabase ( "ACINOTESOHIO/NotesUS", "3230_030.nsf" )
End Sub

A quick look would suggest the order is wrong....I would try

Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidatabase)
Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
Call workspace.OpenDatabase ( "ACINOTESOHIO/NotesUS", "3230_030.nsf" )
Call Source.Close
End Sub

Basically, open the new database first, before closing the current window.  If you close the current window first I do not think the code will complete.

What I needed to do was close the db that opened the second one. This code do not close the parent.

daj_ukCommented:
I've tested it both ways and they work.  However, if what I understand is correct, you simply wish one database to open another, and immediate close itself

A better way to do this is:
  Copy a Database link for the new database
  Open the old database in designer, and edit the "About document" under database resources
  Paste the link
  In the Properties for the old database, change to the "launch" tab - 4th tab
  Change "When opened in the Notes client" to "Launch first doclink in About Application"

This should do the trick

Not sure why you're getting the error message, but It probably has something to do with the event timing.

You may be able to get around the timing issue by trying daj_uk's suggestion.

Setup the 1st database like he says, then the Database.PostOpen event could simply contain...

Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidatabase)
    Call Source.Close
End Sub
