For some reason I can't get this one quite right. I need to get the DialogBox working but only when dba7 is equal to Yes. What am I missing here. Have tried many version, but can't get it quite right. On the code below I am getting no response for either Yes or No.
Sub Exiting(Source As Field)
	Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
	Dim sess As New NotesSession
	Dim doc As NotesDocument
	Set doc = sess.CurrentDatabase.CreateDocument
	If dba7 = "Yes" Then
		Call ws.DialogBox _
		( "dba_popup", True, True, True, True, _
		False, False, "DBA Alert", doc, True )
	End If
End Sub

I assume dba7 is a field on a document? Or is it a variable that has not been assigned yet?
If field: besides the newly created document object, you have no notesdocument available in your code. Should it be found in the form definition or in an open (NotesUIDocument) doc?
If newly creaded doc: that doc holds no fields yet. Please set the form-field and have the document computed based on that form. Something like:

Set doc = sess.CurrentDatabase.CreateDocument
doc.form="myFormName"
Call doc.ComputeWithform(True, False)

Then, rephrase your evaluation:

if doc.dba7(0) = "Yes" then

If dba7 is a field on an opened document, you'd have to access it in the code:

Dim UIDoc = NotesUIDocument
Set UIDoc = ws.CurrentDocument

if UIDoc.FieldGetText("dba7") = "Yes" then


The best way to avoid such problems is to enter following line in the Options section:

Option Declare

That will point out dba7 as undeclared variable at save/compile time, triggering you to a definition.
