RE: Launching Notes Document from Windows Application

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)
<REPLICA 852565A7:005180C7>
<VIEW OFAAC7D56C:A8FD884B-ON852563BE:00610639>

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.
