I've read the Readers field tip, and I want to use it in my current application. The problem is that there are already a lot of saved documents in my database. I've tried putting a computed readers field and populated it with names and roles. It works perfectly for newly created documents, but it wouldn't work on saved documents. How can this be solved?
You will have to write a small agent (either LotusScript or @-functions) to modify the existing documents to add the new Reader field. Put the computed field calculations (which you already have) into this agent, then run it on all existing documents in the database. Be sure to make a backup of the database first, in case something goes wrong!
