Copy from one rich text to another

If a document is not saved the rich text item can not be copied from another rich text field. The following code creates a copy of the currently opened document from a view with all of the contents from the rich text field.

  Code: Dim wsp As New NotesUIWorkspace
 Dim curruidoc As NotesUIDocument
 Dim currdoc As NotesDocument
 Dim ns As New NotesSession
 Dim db As NotesDatabase
 Dim item1 As NotesItem
 Set db=ns.CurrentDatabase
 Set curruidoc=wsp.CurrentDocument
 Set currdoc=curruidoc.Document
 Set item1=currdoc.GetFirstItem("att")
 Dim doc As New NotesDocument(db) 
' create a new document in memory.
 Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("Form", "MailAudit")
 Dim rtf As NotesRichTextItem
 Set rtf = New NotesRichTextItem(doc, "att")
 '//for pasting attachmants
 Set rtitem2 = currdoc.GetFirstItem( "att" )
 Call doc.CopyItem( item1, "att" )
 '//end of pasting
' make Notes complete cached rich text changes.
 Call rtf.Update( )
 Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
 Call ws.EditDocument(True, doc)
