I am experiencing a problem with our Lotus Notes 7 and Notes 8 clients. We recently added a functionality that lets Notes users select which attachments they want to keep after migrating to Lotus Notes 8. The problem is that attachments open on some machines, but not on others. When they don't open, I receive the error message: "Database has not been opened yet." How do I fix this?
I've most commonly seen this error generated by LotusScript code that tries to instantiate an invalid database object handle and then tries to work with it. This could be happening if the server and/or file path are incorrect or if the current machine cannot connect to the target server, but it is more likely that the user does not have access to open the target database.
