Excellent suggestion.  Remember that the agent should RunOnServer.

Scott,

You can do data exchange between Domino and DB2/400 by using lotus script
extensions.

If your Domino is on the AS/400, you can use the direct interface (CLI) to
access data in DB2.
If you Domino is on an other box (NT box for example) you can use the Client
Access ODBC driver to access DB2.
In the two cases, it is prety simple to create a front-end interface in Notes
based on the DB2 data.
Have a look in the designer client help by typing "odbc" in the search form to
displays examples.
You can write your Lotus import/export scripts in agents and execute them via a
lotus interface.

Damien.
