Hi ! I am working on Lotus Domino 8.0 and want to create Address Books other than the default names.nsf in the dominodata folder. Say for City1 -> City1's Address Book City2 -> City2's Address Book I have followed the below steps File >> Application >> New -> I have created a new application with "Personal Address Book" i.e pernames.ntf. In the databse >> ACL >> I have given full access to Notes Admin & Tom (a user) From Notes Admin's Notes Client I have done the following File >> Preferences >> User Preferences >> I have browsed and added "City1's Address Book" but while saving the same it is prompting Local Address Book "City1's Address Book " does not exist I am able to open the database from Tom's Notes Workspace but how to enable Tom to select which Address Book he wants i.e Select a particular Address Book from Multiple Address Books. Though the database is accessible from his workspace but while creating "New Memo" he is not able to access the contacts / or in general the Address Book at all. Kindly help me out in the above regards. Thank You in anticipation.

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

If the adress book is on the server, create first a local replica in your Notes\data directory
In the Notes client, choose Menu File >> Preferences >> User Preferences
In the mail tab, add your adress book file name in the are “Local Adress Book”
Now, this adress book should be in the list when you write a new memo.

    how can I create the second address book in BES ? Should this address book be created in Notes first ?

    To what "second address book" are you referring? Your BB server will use the standard Domino address book.

    If the Domino address book is to be used by more than one person on their Blackberry then you cannot use the methods that are being stated. The Blackberry cannot use a local address book. What needs to be done is this.... Create on the Domino server a database using the pubnames.nft as the template (this will create a Domino Directory). Call it someonthing like CITY1.nsf and set the ACL so Notes admin and Tom and Add/Modify/delete users. Then you need to set up and directory assistance database. Basically another DB called DA.nsf (to keep it simple) . Then open the Directory assistance and create a new directory assistance document. You can either paste in a directory link into the document at the top or put in the server/s and the database location and name/ Keep all the filters to * and this should then be ready to save and close. The onlt thing left to do is add the DA.nsf inot the server document under Directory Assistance database field (halfway down basic tab). Now you can either wait for the server to refresh or restart to be quicker. Once the server has picked up the Directory assistance config there will be another address book showing under the domino directory in the admin client under people and groups. This should mean that all users with Blackberry's can search and use both address books. I hope this is what you are after?
