Retrieve All Columns in a View

This routine iterates through each column in a specified view and displays the column name. When retrieved, the values could be used to produce a spreadsheet or for data manipulation purposes.

How It Works

Using the NotesDatabase and NotesView classes, the routine iterates through a specific view and returns the column names property. Alternatively, you may want to store the column names in a dynamic array or perform some other action with each view column.


In the following example, all column names for a given view are processed with the name of each column appended to a string and displayed in a message window. To implement this technique, create an action button. Set the Language Selector to LotusScript and insert the following statements in the Programmer's pane.

Sub Click(Source As Button)

 ' Define the objects
 Dim s As NotesSession
 Dim db As NotesDatabase
 Dim strColTitles As String
 Dim view As NotesView
 Set s = New NotesSession
 Set db = s.CurrentDatabase
 Set view = db.GetView( "VIEW" )

 ' Display all column titles for specified view
 Forall c In view.Columns
 strColTitles = strColTitles & Chr$(10) & c.Title
 End Forall
 Messagebox( strColTitles )

End Sub
