  1. The Code is not working out of the box for me.
    the line
    session = Dispatch(‘Lotus.NotesSession’)
    had to be changed to
    session = Dispatch(‘Lotus.Notessession’) #note the small ‘s’

    and
    ‘view.getFirstDocument’ has to be called without ‘()’

    the rest works as intended. 🙂

    Thanks.
