Using Lotus Domino Objects

Is it still possible to use Lotus Domino Objects (domobj.tlb) in programs other than Notes? A few versions back I was able to use the reference from VB6 and VBA. Now when I try to use the object from MS Office VBA I get an automation error. I'd really like to read some messages in VBA and send from VB.Net but I can't get either environment to work. Is it possible? Could some post a sample that reads/sends a message or provide a link? I just have a standard client installed.

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

That COM interface is still available from VB and VBA, make sure you have made a reference to the Lotus Domino Objects in your VB/VBA project.

    I understand how to add the reference. The problem is anything I try results in an error. I don't really understand Notes scripting so I don't know if the problwem is me or something else. Could you provide/point me to a very simple script that does anything that would show I'm connecting OK to Notes? The script can assume the client is running already. I'm running Notes 8.0 on Vista and OfficeXP (2000?)

    There is a COM help file out there. I posted it awhile back, I think it is still there. Try: http://www.vmsus.com/DomCom/comdoc.zip Mike K.

    All I get when I try to use the help file is "Web page navigation canceled" or every topic in the TOC. Could you try a simple script on your PC from Excel/Word VBA and see if you can create a session?
