Quick access to user's ID file

Here's an easy way to get the user's ID file in LotusScript.

Here's an easy way to get the user's ID file in LotusScript. This code will find the ID file with only a dozen lines of code. With the file name known, you can easily bring it in as an attachment and e-mail it to a system database for backup purposes.

Want to find the user's ID file? It's identified in their NOTES.INI file (which you can open with regular file operations) but the location of that file can vary from user to user. Instead, it's a lot easier to use the GetEnvironmentString method in LotusScript:br>

Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim ID_Directory As String
Dim ID_FileName As String

ID_Directory = session.GetEnvironmentString("Directory", True)
ID_FileName = session.GetEnvironmentString("KeyFileName", True)
      If Instr(ID_FileName, "") = 0 Then
          If Right$(ID_Directory, 1) = "" Then
              ID_FileName = ID_Directory & ID_FileName
               ID_FileName = ID_Directory & "" & ID_FileName
          End If
      End If

Print "ID file location = " & ID_FileName
