Rob and pnelson,

The domino server and db2 data is on the same box.

Using the apis would be a good solution, when domino was first ported to the
as/400, they gave away some examples of rpg programs that used the apis (I
think they called them Hi-test C apis?).  I've looked for them, but I haven't
been able to find them.

anyone know where I can find them?  I'll look for the api documentation and
roll my own, if that's what I have to do.

Thanks,

Richard Baird

Isn't there an API out there you could call from a trigger program based onthe 
DB2 file to update the Domino database?Rob BerendtİİİİİİİİİİİİA smart person

text/html to text/plain ]Hi all,I'm working on my web based domino ap using 
DECS to mirror an as/400 fileinthe notes ap.  I'm having several problems 
though.Here are a few particulars:  The file I'm working with is a work 
filegenerated and  modified by native as/400 applications - it is 
fairlyvolatileas far as record adds, updates and deletes.  the notes ap only 
updatescertainfields in the file.  The form that DECS monitors only has a few 
of thefieldswith editing allowed.  the rest are "computed for display".   The 
DECSactivity is defined as "open, update"I'm on os/400 V4R4 and R5.0.8.1.  
Records added to the file via native programs do not appear in 
thenotesdatabase.2.  If I "initialize keys" the new records appear in notes, 
but it adds allrecords from the file, even if they already exist. 
(duplicates).3.  After I open, change and save a document, the as/400 file is 
updated,butthe link to the form from the view is changed to "<blank>".I could 
change my application to only allow notes to add records to thedatabase, but I 
was under the impression that DECS was two way street, thatifrecords are added 
or changed in the table natively, the new documents wouldbeavailable in 
notes.Any ideas?  What am I missing?  any help here would be greatly 
appreciated.Richard
