Hi, I am trying to search for a particular Lotus Notes email using the UniversalID of that email and once found, open/display that email in Notes using code in MS Access VBA.  Is this possible?  I cannot use LotusScript.  Thanks, Hammer8

Sure,

Here's a function that you can use...
Public Sub OpenMemoByUnid(ByVal unid As String)
 
  ' open current user's email file
  Dim sess As Object, email As Object, doc As Object
  Set sess = CreateObject("Notes.NotesSession")
  Set email = sess.GetDatabase("", "")
  email.OpenMail
  
  ' get the document
  Set doc = email.GetDocumentByUNID(unid)
  If (doc Is Nothing) Then
    MsgBox ("Unable to locate the specified document!")
  Else
    Dim ws As Object
    Set ws = CreateObject("Notes.NotesUIWorkspace")
    Call ws.EditDocument(True, doc)
    Call AppActivate(ws.CurrentDocument.WindowTitle)
    
  End If
  
End Sub

Open in new window

Wow!  Great.  Is there a way to open the email, but not put it in Edit mode?  Thanks, Hammer8

I found it - chance true to false in EditDocument.  However, I sometimes get a run time error 5 on
Call AppActivate(ws.CurrentDocument.WindowTitle)

Appending " - IBM Lotus Notes" seems to help some, but still get the error?

I've never seen that function raise an error before.

You can either leave it out or tell VB to ignore the error by placing this line before the call to AppActivate.
