Synch. 2 Documents In Script

This snippet will allow you to make two documents virtually the same.
The first doc is the key. If a field exists on that doc, it will be created on
the second. If a field on the second doc has a different value on the first,
the field is set to the first's value.
'Checks each field and assigns new value if different
Forall i In OldDoc.Items
'Iterate through all of the Items in a Document
Dim ThisItem As NotesItem
'Get the same item on the New Document
Set ThisItem = NewDoc.GetFirstItem( i.name )
'If we can't get the item, make one
If ThisItem Is Nothing Then Set ThisItem = New NotesItem( NewDoc, i.name, "" )
'If thisItem's value isn't i's, than make it i's value
If ThisItem.Text <> i.Text Then ThisItem.Values = i.Values
End Forall
