how to copy mail box rules from one nsf to another

I have Lotus Notes 8.5.3 clients. Box mailboxes in question are the 8.5std template.

User A has forty plus folders and rules.

User B needs the same folders and rules.

Found agent script that successfully copied folders.

Need to copy the rules.
How can this be done?

Did you try to copy them manually? Copy/Paste?

Button above works. but it will only remove the attribute off of one document at a time regardless if several are selected. copying works but is tedious one at a time. Need to select ONE rule, remove attribute with button, copy, then paste into other nsf.  Can probably use this as its only  forty rules and i've done 10 so far but would be nice if it would work if highlighted all and then did one copy/paste

I found the same document... :)

I think that, if you use the formula under #6, and you select multiple documents, your button should treat all documents. Simpler code would just be:

     Field $KeepPrivate:= ""

The reverse operation (those rules aren't private for no good reason):

     Field $KeepPrivate:= "1"

Tried both options(#6 and the simple code). But it will only copy one at a time for some reason.
Thanks though

Only "copy" ?? That formula code doesn't copy at all, it only sets a document to 'copyable'. Once changed, select all rules and try to copy them all.

Ah, can't you select all Rules? Did you try Ctrl-A?

The solution I found partially works though I still can only copy one rule at a time. awarded  sjef 250 for the effort and simplifying the code.
