Remove A Field (Item) From All Documents In A Database

This is needed ALL the time as we change our designs, and need to clean out old
fields. Keep it in your tool kit!
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim dc As NotesDocumentCollection
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Dim item As NotesItem
Dim TargetItem As String
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set dc = db.AllDocuments

TargetItem = Inputbox$("What Item would you like to remove from ALL
documents in this database?","Remove Item","")
' ------------ for every document in the db
For j = 1 To dc.Count
Set doc = dc.GetNthDocument(j)
' ------------ if the document has the field (item) that the user inputed
While doc.HasItem(TargetItem)
Set item = doc.GetFirstItem(TargetItem)
' ------------ simply remove it .........
Call item.Remove
Call doc.Save(True,False)
Wend
Print "Cleaning doc # " & Str$(j)
Next
Print "All instances of " & TargetItem & " removed from all documents in
this database"
