Subject: NotesViewNavigator - prob if use .GetPos() and .GetNextDocument()
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Notes Client
Technical Area: Functionality
Platform: Windows Vista client
Release: 8.5
Reproducible: Always

The following LS sequence worked in all versions up to, and including, R8.0.2

set nav = myView.CreateViewNav()
set entry = nav.GetPos( "2.3", "." )
set entryDoc = nav.GetNextDocument( entry )

In R8.5 the object entryDoc is still 'nothing' after executing the 3rd line. This breaks any LS code that uses this sequence.

A workaround is as follows (requires that next entry is not 'nothing'!)

set nav = myView.CreateViewNav()
set entry = nav.GetPos( "2.3", "." )
set entry = nav.GetNext(entry) ' Move to next entry
set entry = nav.GetPrev(entry) ' Move back
set entryDoc = nav.GetNextDocument( entry ) ' now works!

If any problems reproducing the problem let me know and I can send a test db which shows the issue.
