RE: Tools for hacking a Notes database?

Is this what you are experiencing?


From the KB:

Problem:

A customer has set up different databases that all reside on a server, and has set each database to 'Open Designated Frameset' when opened in the Notes Client (this setting is chosen on the Launch tab of the Database properties).

For several users, if their computer crashes, this causes the 'When Opened in the Notes Client' setting on the local Database properties to lose the 'Open Designated Frameset' choice and default back to the 'Restore as Last Viewed by User' Launch property.

This problem is very intermittent; there is no set pattern. The customer cannot reproduce the problem on demand. The users are all using laptops and do not have the Domino R5 Designer license on their laptops, so they cannot change the Launch setting themselves. The customer accesses the troubled users' database copy on the server, checks the database properties, and they appear correctly; however, when the users access the database, the behavior does not open the specified frameset. Some users have a replica copy of the databases in question.

This problem seems to occur when Notes is open and there is a crash in another application (for example, MS Word, Internet Explorer, Domino Designer, etc.). After these crashes, the Databases properties spontaneously change from 'Open Designated Frameset' to 'Restore as Last Viewed by User'.

Solution:

This issue has been reported to Lotus Quality Engineering.

Workaround:
1. Open the Notes R4-style Workspace (click the Databases folder on the bookmark bar and select Workspace).
2. On the Workspace, delete the icon for the database with the Frameset launch problem (the one that contains the 'Restore as Last Viewed' launch property instead of what it should say: 'Open Designated Frameset').
3. Close the Workspace.
4. Open the database using the existing Bookmark; the database now opens with the correct launch property.

A Few Caveats:
If the user does happen to have a local copy of the database and also accesses the database from the server, they have to use the following, much more tedious workaround procedure:

1. Open Notes R4-style Workspace (click the Databases folder on the bookmark bar and select Workspace).
2. Delete the icons for both database replicas. Annoyingly this changes the bookmark Replica List as well (it now shows only the local replica). If you try to add the server replica to the bookmark's Replica list at this point, it fails to find the replica.
3. So instead, open the local replica using the bookmark.
4. Close the database.
5. Now, add the server replica to the bookmark's replica list. Both the server and local replicas now open with the correct Launch setting.
