I have two apps I am working with.  One is a library that contains employee profiles and is updated by admins with term dates, status, etc.  I have another database that calls some of that data into the form.  This works fine with @DbLookups on the form.  What I am looking for is a way to update the Term Date overnight.  So that if an admin edits the library with a termination date, then that night it will update that field in my current database.  

I do have a basic formula that is running:

name:=@If(CRD = "";"";@Subset(repList;9));
FIELD Adv_Status:= @If(name = "";"";rep[7]);
FIELD Adv_Term:= @If(name = "";"";rep[8]);

This is working on demand but I have a lot of documents going into the new database and I was wondering if there is a more effiecent way to do this.  Also not sure if I would need to  update/refresh the document with the agent. I am running 8.5.1 FP2

I am still learning lotusscript - but I am thinking that this would need to actually be created in script rather then formula.

It seems like a easy answer, to update the term field and refresh the doc but I am struggling with how to accomplish this.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
