I suppose you import entire documents? Read the document "NotesDXLImporter class" in the Designe Help database.

Then, you'll need the methods NotexDXLImporter.GetFirstImportedNoteID and NotexDXLImporter.GetNextImportedNoteID to walk through the documents you imported. To attach a document to a specific folder, you need the NotesDocument.PutInFolder method.

yes it worked for newly created folders.

but failed on default view folders

like Drafts and Send

can you tell how to insert dxl file data to these default view folder

Drafts and Send folder.
Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
Drafts and Sent aren't folders, they are views. In order to make your documents appear in those views, you have to make sure the documents match the views' selection formulas.

SELECT PostedDate = "" & $MessageType = "" & @IsNotMember("D" : "A"; ExcludeFromView) & ISMAILSTATIONERY != 1 & Form != "Group" & Form != "Person"

SELECT DeliveredDate = "" & PostedDate != "" & !(@IsMember("S"; ExcludeFromView))

So, a Draft document is practically empty, the Form-field could be set to "Memo" but the rest should be empty and it will show up in the Draft-view. To make a document appear in Sent, it needs a PostedDate while DeliveredDate is empty.
