New to 6.5 is the NotesColorObject, but when using a field of type "color" the value is stored as a hex string. NotesColorObject will not take this string as input, so you have to convert it to its RGB components.
define and set doc as a NotesDocument
get the first color item stored in doc
Set item = doc.GetFirstItem("apF")
colors = setNotesColor(item.Text)
Function setNotesColor( clr As String )
Dim s As New NotesSession
Dim soct As String, toct As String, foct
Dim color As NotesColorObject
soct = Mid( clr, 3, 2)
toct = Mid( clr, 5, 2)
foct = Right( clr, 2 )
r = Val("&H" + soct)
g = Val("&H" + toct)
b = Val("&H" + foct)
Set color = s.CreateColorObject
setNotesColor = color.SetRGB(r, g, b)
