Creating Microsoft Word documents from Lotus Notes

Learn how to create Microsoft Word documents from a back-end Lotus Notes database using Java code.

A while back, I submitted a tip that shows how to create PDF documents from Lotus Notes. This tip is along the same lines -- it shows how to create Microsoft Word documents from Lotus Notes.

Both methods use the iText JAR file. The only real difference in this tip is that you use a different class. If you are proficient in Java and Notes/Domino R6 or above, this should work well for you.

Because of the length of the script, I've submitted it as a clickable Microsoft Word document. Click here to view or download the Java code.
