Button Script To Add Server Connection Documents To Personal Address Book

This script can be used in an Action Button sent to users in order for them to
add server connection documents to their Personal Address Book. This script
will first alert the user to what is about to happen, then check for the
existence of one of two connection documents, add any connection documents as
appropriate, and notify the user how many connection documents were added.

Sub Click(Source As Button)
Messagebox "This action will automatically add Connection Documents to the
Huntsville servers if they do not already exist in your Personal Address
Book.", 0 + 64, "Huntsville Connection Documents"
Dim db As New NotesDatabase("" , "names.nsf")
Dim view As NotesView
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Dim success As Variant
Dim connect As NotesDocument
Dim State As Integer
State = 0

Set view = db.GetView("Connections")
Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
While Not (doc Is Nothing)
If doc.Destination(0) =
"Server1Name(i.e.CN=RSCHUN-DH01/OU=RES/O=Raytheon/C=US)" Then
Goto NextServer
Else
Set doc = view.GetNextDocument(doc)
End If
Wend

Set connect = db.CreateDocument
connect.form = "local"
connect.type = "Connection"
connect.destination = "Server1Name(i.e.,
CN=RSCHUN-DH01/OU=RES/O=Raytheon/C=US)"
connect.lanportname = "TCPIP"
connect.connectiontype = "0"
connect.optionalnetworkaddress = "Server1IPAddress (i.e., xxx.xx.xx.xx)"
success = connect.ComputeWithForm( False, False)
Call connect.Save(True,True)
State = State + 1


NextServer:
Set view = db.GetView("Connections")
Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
