Using Profile Document To Store Sap Login Information

YOU have a Notes-SAP integration project and you are creating a database. You
do not want clever user to bypass the navigator and access the views direct to
peek system settings (e.g. SAP login information).

SO how do you prevent that?
YOU can use the database profile document which is not shown in a view.

FIRSTLY, you create a form which contains two set of fields; one set of
editable fields for user to update/modify, the other set of computed for
display for retrieving last saved values.

NEXT, create a corresponding button; one for updating the values, the other one
for retrieving the values.

THIS is the code for the first button:-
@SetProfileField("SAPSetup";"ProfileServerName";ServerName) ;
@SetProfileField("SAPSetup";"ProfileUserName";UserName) ;
@SetProfileField("SAPSetup";"ProfilePassword";Password)

AND this is the code for the second button:-
FIELD dServerName := @GetProfileField("SAPSetup";"ProfileServerName") ;
FIELD dUserName := @GetProfileField("SAPSetup";"ProfileUserName") ;
FIELD dPassword := @GetProfileField("SAPSetup";"ProfilePassword") ;

FINALLY in your LotusScript code, you can access the profile document for the
SAP login information using this sample code:-

Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Dim doc_Profile As NotesDocument

Set doc_Profile = db.GetProfileDocument("SAPSetup")

Server$=doc_Profile.ProfileServerName(0)
UserName$=doc_Profile.ProfileUserName(0)
Password$=doc_Profile.ProfilePassword(0)
