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)
