Images in Notes Rich Text Fields

0 pts.
Tags:
Visual Basic
I have a Notes database (version 5.0.11) that contains images that were imported into Rich Text Fields. I need to retrieve data from the .NSF document in Visual Basic, including the images from the Rich Text Fields. I want to write this data along with the images to an Access 2002 database. Can this be done, how and do you have any code examples? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I recommend that you read the IBM Redbook called:

COM Toegther – with Domino

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg245670.html?Open

Only 158 pages if you read everything. You will only need to read about 80 pages to get started. This is an introduction to COM use with Domino.

This will give you the basics you need to write VB Code to open a Notes Database and get to all the methods and classes that you will need to access. I have done similar things with VBA code from Excel and Access. I have not done anythig with Rich Text Fields but it is possible to get the info that is in them.

Hope this helps

    Thanks for your reply. I am using the COM classes to access the Domino databases but have not had any luck getting the images from the Rich Text fields. Maybe I will find something the Redbook to help. Thanks again.

    Try the embbedded object found in the NotesRichText Class. That is supposed to be how you get to file attachments, etc. I have had quite a bit of success using the EmbeddedObjects while working with file attachments. madkahuna

    Thanks, I have tried the embedded objects method. Unfortunately, these images are not attachments, they are imported into the fields.
