How does DECS behave when you switch the form name?

How does DECS behave when you switch the form name? DECS obviously uses the field FORM to determine if and what activity to monitor. So what happens if you change a form name in QuerySave or an Agent, such as RequestDraft to RequestActual?

a) from an unmonitored to a monitored
b) from a monitored to an unmonitored
c) from a monitored to another monitored FORM name.

What events fire create, update, delete?
DECS works exactly as you've stated - by watching documents with a given form value. Basically, DECS watches for Domino to perform certain document events and acts according to the settings on your activity documents. DECS performs its actions either before - in the case of Open, and after - in the cases of Create, Update and Delete, Domino servers the document to your user interface (Notes or a www device). Therefore, any LotusScript actions take place inside of this context. So, to answer your items in order:

a) Whatever Create, Update &/or Delete events you have defined should be executed
b) Nothing should happen
c) The "another" Form's activity(s) should be invoked Notice the word "should" on all these lines. As many have said in the past, "Your mileage may vary!"
