Lotus Software produced the Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet program, and later developed Lotus Notes, a groupware and email system. Following its acquisition by IBM, the Notes and Domino client/server collaborative platform were expanded to include functions such as email, calendars, to-do lists, contacts management, teamrooms, discussion forums, file sharing, microblogging, instant messaging, blogs, and user directories. IBM also release SmartSuite, a comprehensive office suite, and followed that with Symphony, unrelated to the Lotus suite of the same name.

how to transfer archived mail to inbox in lotus notes
Do you know any software that works similar to PYTHEAS mail gateway?

or can you suggest any thing that works similar to it?

ı want to get backup from teamwork on lotus.haw can i do this?
I'm trying to export Lotus Notes Data to csv and especially the universal id's with the username.
I've already managed to export the documents and also managed to export many of the fields through other agents but i'm now trying to export the unique id's of the documents with the shortname if available or else the reader of the document.
It works: The data is exporting, but the problem i'm facing is that after about 4 hours of exporting the agent stops with an error:
"Notes error: Field is too large (32K) or View's column & selection formulas are too large"

And I can't find a way to skip the specific document and suppress this warning.
I've also tried to log the universal id of the document, but the universal id's that were last logged (and are next to it) don't give me an error when I open the documents.
I've already done a compact & fixup on the database, and also tried to copy the database to local and run it again (as some posts say it should help), but all have not lead to a solution.

Can someone tell me how i can find the related document and fix the field (ideally)?
Or else: Is there a way to just skip the document if this error occurres and go on to the next document?
I expected that 'On error resume nextdoc' would suppress the error, but this didn't make any sense and the error is still popping up.

This is the Agent i'm currently using (I'm not an expert in Lotusscript so it may be a bit messy):

I have a template in Lotus Notes. Is it possible to somehow send an email using this template. So far I only know how to send normal email, but not an email with template.
As a very senior dinosaur I have been using Lotus 123 for a gazillion years.  It's now starting to malfunction by not functioning the way I want, etc.  Consequently and because I've previously lost some data, I think I better replace this program with something new but similar.  Can you suggest such a freebie type program to replace Lotus 123 (I'm only interested in the Smart Suite portion) with similar functions, etc.
Hello I have expired Cert id and I don't know what to do.
I have dialog box "This certificate must be reissued with a new expiration date". Where I cen reisued it?

In declaration, set the following variables:
Dim service As ILoadComplements_n0 
Dim data As DataComplemntSingle64_n3
Dim response As Statusreturn_n3

Open in new window

Dim content As String

Within initialize I declare the following:
Set service= New ILoadComplements_n0()
Set data = New  DataComplemntSingle64_n3()

Open in new window

content = "asdu7282368jd5hd6zxPasdg"
Call data.Setvaluefromstring(content)
Set response = service.LoadsingleComplemet64(data)
Print response.status.Getvalueasstring()
Print response.reason.Getvalueasstring()

Open in new window

My problem is the service returns me:

Estatus -> False
Motivo ---> the payment plug-in XML that is being loaded is empty

That False is back to me is fine, the problem is that he tells me that the content chain that I sent him is empty and it is not like that. A solution or explanation of why my web service receives an empty string?

I feel that my problem is in this line but I do not know why:
Set response = service.LoadsingleComplemet64(data)

I created an application, which one of the functions is to remind user to complete the form before the deadline.
If the deadline is over and the user did not complete the form, the application will automatically send reminder to user, every 2 days after the deadline until the user complete the form.

In the form, I created these fields:
Deadline, Status

Deadline: The deadline is 7 business days from the date of the form created.
Status: Radio button with two options. (Accepted and Not accepted). If Status is empty or not accepted, and the deadline is over, it will send reminder to user to complete the form.

Could you please help me on this question?

Thank you very much in advance.

I found this piece of code, but as I occupy it in my code, since I need to convert my xml file to base64 and then send it to be consumed by a web service.

Dim stream As NotesStream
Set stream = session.CreateStream	
Dim body As NotesMimeEntity

session.ConvertMIME = False

Call stream.WriteText(textToWrite)
Set body = doc.CreateMIMEEntity
Call body.SetContentFromText(stream, "", ENC_NONE)
Call body.EncodeContent(ENC_BASE64)

content = body.ContentAsText

Open in new window

And to send to consume the Web Service I found this piece of code ...

Sub Initialize
    Dim xmlhttp As Variant
    dim DOMDocument As Variant
    Dim soapEnvelope As String
    Dim webService As String
    dim username As String
    Dim password As String
    Dim strxml As String

    Set xmlhttp = CreateObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
    Set DOMDocument = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")

    webService = "http://server/path/service"

    username = "user1"
    password = "123456"

    soapEnvelope ={<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:doc="http://checkYourOwnEnvelopeDetails.com">}
    soapEnvelope =soapEnvelope & {<soap:Header/>}
    soapEnvelope =soapEnvelope & {<soap:Body>}

    ' ...use SoapUI to know the exact envelop structure

    soapEnvelope =soapEnvelope & {</soap:Body>}
    soapEnvelope =soapEnvelope & {</soap:Envelope>}

    DOMDocument.loadXML (soapEnvelope)

    Call xmlhttp.open("POST", webService, False,username,password)

All,  Soon I will be migrating a company off of domino/notes version 9 to Office 365 for Email.  Currently all users use Lotus notes as their mail client.  Inside of lotus notes they have an active data base labeled "customer Tracking"

The customer tracking database houses a full client list and client profiles (with contact information and such)  Also they can add notes and tasks (such as an office visit to the client or log a phone call) to each client and assign them to users within the company.  The database is 1.2 gigs in size and a .NSF file.

My real question is does anyone know of a good solution to first get this data out of the Domino server and then a good solution for the users to continue to use this info and build on it in something else besides Lotus notes.

My plan is to turn off the domino server at the end of the 365 migration.
I have big problem with creation document from XML file by web link. I not sure how is the best way to make lotusscript agent to import rate and create documents with it. I need it to international invoices where date with currency rates can be different every time (it is the reason that i would like to create new documents)

I have above data which is been send using ajax json Probably POST method.

Now my question is that How I can parse this data into Lotusscript agent ?

I am printing view using lotusScript and HTML on web, I have set 100% table width.

HTMLPrint= HTMLPrint+ ""+tableStarter+"" + "<TABLE BORDER=""0"" CELLSPACING=""0"" CELLPADDING=""0"" WIDTH=""100%"" >"
                  HTMLNewArticle =HTMLNewArticle +   "<TABLE class = ""blueTable"" BORDER=""0"">"
Now for one of the TD on web takes too much width even thought it is data field.

After this I have set <th widht =""10"">datereview</th>
and while printing data i set <td width=""10"">doc.datefield(0)</td>
but while previewing on web it takes too much width while other who suppose to get proper width are getting smaller and wrapping in another line.
I'm new to IBM/Lotus Notes.  A user in our office recently reformatted her computer.  How can she recover her Notes account and login info on her computer?  I believe there was some file with a name like {username}.id on her old computer, which is now gone.  How can we re-generate that file from the Lotus Domino Administration client or the corresponding Exchange connector?

Also, we recently rolled over our existing Notes e-mail to Office 365.  Now, the user cannot see any old e-mail on the "{username.nsf" icon in the left column (accounts) of Outlook.  How do I recover this .nsf?  Will the user get back all of her old e-mail in Notes on her computer?

Thank you in advance for your comments.  We really need help.

Listed in "All Calendar Entries" under "Grouped Entries" event was created in 2011, recurring every second Monday ad infinitum. Once accepted, unable to delete!
First Error message, upon attempting to delete from Grouped Entries:  "You must select an instance document to perform these actions."
Upon opening event, "Repeating Entries" box pops up ("This document cannot be modified. It contains the original information for a repeating meeting from when the meeting was first created.  If you wish to apply changes, select a specific occurrence of the meeting.)
Clicking OK, then opening "Repeats" to "View Dates" reveals a list of dates which are not selectable from list (this event does not appear on any of them, I've looked up many), and
Attempting to delete from that opened view changes the view back to the "All Calendar Entries" list.

The person who created the entry stopped having the meeting several months after this went out, and later left the company...
Hello there,

I am looking for a solution to get a more useful overview of room bookings in Lotus Notes.

I think the Embedded Scheduler Control provides a good start, but what the out-of-the box solution is missing is information of the Person who reserved the booking and the title of the meeting.

Would appreciate any feedback on if / how this can be done.

I am looking for providing a concise overview of all meeting rooms + the info of who booked for what reason on per room level.

I attach a screenshot to somehow show what I am looking for.

Thanks a lot !
