#7. Editing fields in a Lotus Notes view with Ajax

#9. How to protect your Lotus Notes application design

After a last-name change, a Lotus Notes user may no longer have proper access to Lotus Notes documents, because they still contain her old last name. This LotusScript utility from SearchDomino.com member Scott Huyser solves that problem. It updates all documents in the Lotus Notes database with the employee's new last name.
