do you need to print a Notes document perfectly onto a preprinted form? There
are third party tools that do a nice job at this, but if you have only a few
different formats you need to handle and if your users have MS-Word, one option
is to use OLE automation to have Notes control a Word session and create a Word
doc based on the Notes document and print it. All without the user seeing
Word. One of the tricks is to use a template file (DOT file) with bookmarks,
which simplifies the script code. Some simplified code is below.
' ... set up all the Notes stuff, such as doc
' handle, etc.
' Create word doc using OLE automation
set objWord = createObject ("Word.Basic")
'Move word cursor to a bookmark
' Get a field from Notes doc
username$ = doc.userName(0)
' Push this field value into Word
' Goto next bookmark and do the same
phone$ = doc.Phone(0)
' Do this for all other fields you need in Word
' If you want, save Word doc to file
' Or print the doc
' and Close
