My customer wishes to access documents from a separate Notes database. We currently provide this capability with a picklist in a Notes client application. So, I simply added a view panel to my xpage and then discovered that the view comes up blank. I get the pager and the column titles, but that's it. Using the picklist in the Notes client brings up the view with documents just fine (and has for many years). My id used in the client has the exact same access rights as the id used in the browser.
I tried creating a new view, same result.
No errors, but no documents either. I found a post about a problem with the "dont show empty categories" checkbox, but this is not checked. the view is categorized by the first column and the second column is sorted ascending.
It seems as though there is some security somewhere that's preventing the documents from showing in a browser view panel - doesn't make any sense, but that's how it acts.
