"GetDocumentByKey" is not giving search result when key has new line present in it.

The syntax for "GetDocumentByKey" is -->

Set notesDocument = notesView .GetDocumentByKey( keyArray [, exactMatch% ] )

If the value of the "keyArray" parameter has a new line present in it, then the search does not give any results irrespective of the fact that a matching document does exist in the database.

Example -->

Let's say the value of "keyArray" is in the below format (a new line is present in the value):



In such cases, "GetDocumentByKey" will not fetch any document even though a matching document exists.

The situation remains the same with other available LotusScript methods like "GetAllDocumentsbykey", "GetEntrybykey" and "GetAllEntriesByKey".

The behavior remains the same even if one uses Formula language "@Dblookup".

    why would you have a new line in a key?
    what is the use case?

    I don't really see how this is a real problem and I would not see why key lookups should be used that way.
