Starting with Notes/Domino Version 7, you can do a join. You can back-end the Lotus Notes database with DB2, and use DB2 Access Views and Query Views to publish selected Lotus Notes fields in relational tables. You can then build a Query View that displays data from those tables. The Select statement is written in SQL, so your DB2 knowledge will come in handy.
