RE: Documents with a DocLink Graham Richards 10.Mar.06 11:03 AM Lotus Notes Notes Client 7.0Windows XP
The link will contain a "Database hint". If the database is already on the desktop, this is ignored.
When the database is not on the desktop, Notes will attempt to access the server in the hint. If your network is configured correctly, and Notes can resolve the name of the server to it's IP address, no connection document will be required.
If you network is not set up to resolved the server from just the name, then the user will need a connection document.
