Copy Design Element to Mail File

Once in a while we have a lotus notes form which we need to share amongst a few users. Instead of creating a modified mail template and having the users refresh the design of their mail files based on this modified template, we use the following code to copy a single form out of a database on our domino server.

Important note: This code will copy the first form listed in the design only.

server:= <Your domino server>; database := <Name of your notes datatabase>; viewName:= <The name of any view in the database&LG; @Command([FileOpenDatabase]; server : database ; viewName ); @Command([DesignForms]); @Command([EditCopy]) ; @PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow]) ; @PostedCommand([FileOpenDatabase]; @MailDbName ); @PostedCommand([DesignForms]);

@PostedCommand([EditPaste]); @PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow])
