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.

    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.
