This chapter provides a number of Formula Language customizations that can be incorporated into most Lotus Notes databases. Each customization module is self-contained and designed to run independently. This enables you to copy the code into any existing application and implement it with little to no modification.
The intent of this chapter is to provide common customizations that can be added to any database. Each customization includes a functional summary, an explanation of how the code works, and detailed instructions for installing the code. Each code section will run with no additional code logic required. Customizations include the following:
