Version 5 made it for you; Here is how (simple) it works.

We just have 2 methods :

- ArchiveLogDBPath
Launch archiving :
Call notesdatabase.ArchiveNow([notesDocCollection])

- notesDocCollection : collection of doc to archive, optional. If nothing
then it refers to the archive profil.

Edit archive setting :
Call notesdatabase.EditArchiveSettings()
