Unable to design a Lotus Notes database

bradpink asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
We have a Notes database that was commissioned by us via an external company many years ago (v4).  We wish to carry out some in-house modifications to upgrade this to v8.5 and include some additional fields and reporting, however I have been told that the developer we commissioned has "locked" the database template, preventing us carrying out our own development and locking us into using them forever.  Is there a way to "unlock" the database?
