Another possibility is to create .NDL files, which stands for Notes Document Link.
Steps to create a .NDL file:
1. Open a Notes Database.
2. Select Edit, Copy As Link and select the type of link you want to create, for example a View link.
3. Open the Windows Notepad and choose the menu Edit, Paste. The following is an example of what the Notepad file will look like:
discuss - By Category (discuss is the Notes Database name and "By Category" is the view link)
4. Save the Notepad file with the .NDL extension.
The .NDL file can be attached to a web page, opened through a Web browser or attached to a Notes mail message to be sent to a non Notes Mail user. You can also open Windows Explorer, double click on this file and it will launch the Notes client and open the View link.
Note: The Notes client needs to be installed on the client's machine for the link to work.
