View export agent

View member feedback to this tip.

This code allows you to export information from a view into a text file. You can specify the delimiter to use in the call to Export.


Sub Initialize
Dim Session As New NotesSession
Dim CurDB As NotesDatabase
Dim View As NotesView
Dim Doc As NotesDocument
Dim FileNum As Integer

FileNum = Freefile
Open "C:\Export.txt" For Output As FileNum

Set CurDB = Session.CurrentDatabase
Set View = CurDB.GetView("Main")
Set Doc = View.GetFirstDocument

While Not(Doc Is Nothing)
Call Export(FileNum, Doc, ",")
Set Doc = View.GetNextDocument(Doc)

Close #FileNum
End Sub

Sub Export(FileNum As Integer, CurDoc As NotesDocument, Sep As String)
Dim Values As Variant
Dim Cnt As Integer
Dim ExpStr As String

Values = Doc.ColumnValues

ExpStr = Values(0)

For Cnt = 1 To Ubound(Values)
ExpStr = ExpStr & Sep & Values(Cnt)

Print #FileNum, ExpStr

End Sub


In the export, Subroutine doc. should be replaced by CurDoc. to make it work.!
