This Lotus Script code calls an undocumented function "NSFDbRename" in the nnotes.dll. Works successfully in Notes 4.6. Not tested in R5.
It accepts two parameters:
1. Database to be renamed (with optional server)
2. New database name (with optional server)
If you specify a server, it must be in the format:
In this case, both parameters MUST contain the canonical server name.
This function also uses the "OSLoadString" API call to convert an API error code into a string value.
If you need to use the same function written in "C", let me know and I will send you the C code.
