A small sample on how to create your own toolbar in IBM Notes client

Tags: Formula Lotus Notes

I have just blogged about how users of my product Notes Import Export Library can extend their use of the tool by using a custom toolbar in the Notes client in the How to create Notes Import Export Library Toolbar with buttons for export to Excel.  The users end up with a toolbar like this;


Clicking on the buttons export the current IBM Notes view to Excel.

Please note that Notes Import Export Library a purchasable product, but you can of course use the described technique to do any @formula-stuff with your own icons.


One machine, same app, two id-files, @MailSend works on one id, fails on the other?

Tags: Question Lotus Notes Formula

I experience a very strange problem these days. One of my users phoned me about some mails that hadn’t been received. So, on my own machine, with the same Notes client (8.5.2) and the same application, I experience the following;

  • With my ID, @MailSend works fine. I get the “Mail has been submitted” message in the status bar, and the mail actually arrives at the recipients mail file

  • With another id, the same fails. I still get the “Mail has been submitted” message, but the mail never reaches its recipient

Has anybody experienced this?

Another question; where do MailSend submit data to? The mail.box on the server? I can’t seem to track down the flow here.

BTW; I have also tried the same send operation with NotesUIDocument’s Send, with the same result. No error was caught … same message


Do you need a list of reserved words in LotusScript or Formula-language?

Tags: LotusScript Formula
I have compiled 3 lists of reserved words for the LotusScript language itself, the exposed Notes-classes (such as NotesSession etc) and finally for the Formula-language. You may download them here.

My primary use for these lists is to have the super-configurable spellchecker AsUType behave better when I program in Domino Designer!
