Is it possible to write an agent to open/read in a file of user shortnames and create a document in the notes database with the user information.  even if I could get the agent to create a document for each shortname in the list would be a huge start.

Form called = UserForm
field called = ShortName

After I run the agent I would like to have a document for each name in my list with the field ShortName filled in.

Is this possible?  This is something I need very quickly.

Hi Jaziar,

Why don't you import from Lotus 1-2-3 format, or .csv ? And if you want to register new users, you can also do that from a file. See the Admin Help for that.
