C&S - That resource reservation sites located in a sub directory (via EDC) to be picked up

The customer would like to see that sites from resources in a sub-directory (via EDC) can be picked up, currently only sites in the primary domino directory will be picked up.



The customer has an additional directory where all rooms and resources are gathered via EDC for a better overview of resources, but they find that when this additional directory is embedded via directory assistance and not located in the root of the domino server you are not able to select the site for different rooms and resources. 


Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a directory not in the root of the Domino server, but in a subdirectory

2. Embed this directory via DA

3. Collect all rooms and resources via EDC to this directory

4. Create a calendar entry of type "Meeting" and go to "Search for rooms"

 ===> If you try to select a site inside this directory, this does not work !


The customer found that the error is located in the form "(Room Resource Scheduler)", where the subdirectory is not included in the "@DbColumn" selection. The selection looks this way:

>>> @DBColumn('':'NoCache';'servername':'directory.nsf';'($Resources)';2 );


It should look this way:

>>>@DBColumn('':'NoCache';'servername':'dir/directory.nsf;'($Resources)';2 );


The correction of this "error" is simple. In the "QueryOpen" of the form the line

>> nabentry = v.title + "|"v.server"*" + v.filename

has to be changed to

>> nabentry = v.title + "|"v.server"*" + Replace(v.filepath,"\","/")


Then everything´s working fine.


The customer would like to see development add this functionality to future releases of notes and domino.
