DECS-initialize keys

Lets assume that you have a Notes database containing customer information. It is a read only database which is populated with a DB2 table as a backend. Users inquiry and add response documents (some sort of a discussion database). Your DB2 database keeps growing adding new customers but keys ( cutomer numbers) are missing on the Notes side. You need to add up the missing keys without duplicating currents one you have in your notes database.
Add an activity mapping Notes and DB2 databases with a Create event to monitor. You just need to add a simple formula in the Filter Formula field: @If(dummy=""). When you run the intialize keys action, a dialog box will come up allowing you to put a conditional clause for key initialization against the DB2 database (example:Customer>12345). New keys will be added to your notes database without duplication.
