If you use the copy method of the NotesDocument class, you typically receive a new and different Universal ID for the new Lotus Notes document. The LotusScript code below allows you to keep the original Universal ID.
Function NoteCopy2DBWithSameUNID (noteToCopy As NotesDocument, DbDest As NotesDatabase) Dim noteDest As NotesDocument Set noteDest = DBDest.CreateDocument noteDest.UniversalID = noteToCopy.UniversalID Call noteToCopy.CopyAllItems(noteDest) Call noteDest.Save(True,True) End Function
