EmbeddedView by Formula

Enables to embed Views (Server!!Database!!View) from different databases. Today embedded views are linked by replicaId, So if you distribute applications by template - the embedded view points to the test / development application, Which is annoing and unprofessional.

    To work around the problem, we use very small subforms that only contain view embeddings. We will then fix them in the target database and prohibit them from the design. Then it is possible to repeatedly refresh the database design.


    But it needs to be fixed so that the target can be defined by a formula.

    We're almost 4 years later and this is still just under consideration?! Come on HCL. Please make this happen. I don't care about Nomad. My only wish regarding Notes/Domino if I could just ask for one thing would be this. I've been a notes developer for 20 years now so I wouldn't ask if it weren't that much of an annoyance. 87 votes isn't enough? DQL was a breakthrough but that makes my need for this even bigger since I can finally split my 1 million documents over multiple databases. The result being that I have more embedded view but also more frustration because of this!! I would pay for this solution!!!!

    Whoever gave the tip about the DXL workaround, thank you thank you thank you. Apparently we cannot know each other's names here, we're all guests, so Guest, thanks for saving me 'again' hours of frustration. And HCL, please fix this. If I can make it work in 15 minutes using a dxl workaround it should only take you 10 minutes to add a database property so we can change the source. The principle already exists for other elements in Notes. I've added a notepad file here with the code on how to do it. Hope it helps others hours of frustration as well.

    Same thing for ressources like images. As a matter of fact, in framesets, the database can be computed. It should be the same in any element that can be chosen in another database.

    It is very frustrating that this is still not possible.

    Embedded views are great, except you can not specify Server and Database. Please fix !

    We really need this.. Don't consider this, just make it happen PLEASE. It gives me so much more work not having this simple improvement. I also have like 20-30 embedded views and need to manually adjust them after each template update. It gets really frustrating after a while.. Years go by and no solution.. This would make me really happy!

    Yes please.

    This would be a great feature.

    That would be great. I have a work around,
    I have databases that have 16 embedded views from other databases. I wrote a lotus script agent that exchanges the database property of each view with dxl. However, the form or subform property 'prohibit design refresh or replace to modify' must be set.
    I can send the script.

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

    In framesets and outlines, the database formula for embedded elements was implemented for about 20 years ago, but not in embedded views. There were lots of same suggestions on IdeaJam, but it did not bring any result. I'm developer, and I do not find any reasonable grounding for this...

    Yes.  We have a commercial case management software for prosecutors with about 40 embedded views to other databases.    This means after each upgrade, we have to manually fix 40 embedded views which can take a few hours.  Clearly this is not ideal.

    We really need this one too. Should be a low hanging fruit.

    Missing for soooo long - there was actually a note from someone at IBM in the R6 or something timeframe that this is the next thing he would add, and there was rumors, that this can allready done via dxl roundtripping - discussing the later one, my customer said, they wont accept such a technology in production in this case.
