Print |Content-Type: application/vnd.ms-excel| Print |<table border="1"> <tr><td width="80">Document titles </td><td>document authors</td> </tr> <tr><td>title number one</td> <td>author number one</td></tr> <tr><td>title number two</td> <td>author number two</td></tr> </table>|
If you access an agent containing this code (from a browser using http://server/database.nsf/searchagentname?openagent), it will open up Excel displaying three rows and two columns.
So, what you need to do is have a Web-enabled form with a query field and a submit button. Put an agent name in the webquerysave event of the form. Let the agent access session.DocumentContext, and from there access the field containing the query. Do an ftsearch and then loop through the resulting documents, printing a new line containing something like this for each document:
Print |<tr><td>| & loopducment. subject(0) & |</td><td>| & loopdocument. authors(0) & |</td></tr>|
