As far as the Hi-Test API's, they are no longer supported or available.  
Wetried to get these for one of our customers and talked with Lotus Supportand 
that was the response.I believe that you should be able to write an agent that 
would compare keysbetween the legacy system and the Notes db and then process 
accordingly.I do know that RNext will have another product that will allow you 
tocreate virtual views to backend data.  Once again, this would not be 
free.Here are some links to Notes.Net information that may

data is on the same box.Using the apis would be a good solution, when domino 
was first ported totheas/400, they gave away some examples of rpg programs that 
used the apis (Ithink they called them Hi-test C apis?).  I've looked for them, 
but Ihaven'tbeen able to find them.anyone know where I can find them?  I'll 
look for the api documentation androll my own, if that's what I have to

Please respond todomino400[ Converted text/html to text/plain ]Hi all,I'm 
working on my webbased domino ap using DECS to mirror an as/400 fileinthe notes 
ap.  I'mhaving several problems though.Here are a few particulars:  The file 
I'mworking with is a work filegenerated and  modified by native 
as/400applications - it is fairlyvolatileas far as record adds, updates 
anddeletes.  the notes ap only updatescertainfields in the file.  The formthat 
DECS monitors only has a few of thefieldswith editing allowed.  therest 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 vianative programs do not 
appear in thenotesdatabase.2.  If I "initializekeys" the new records appear in 
notes, but it adds allrecords from thefile, even if they already exist. 
(duplicates).3.  After I open, change andsave a document, the as/400 file is 
updated,butthe link to the form fromthe view is changed to "<blank>".I could 
change my application to onlyallow notes to add records to thedatabase, but I 
was under the impressionthat DECS was two way street, thatifrecords are added 
or changed in thetable natively, the new documents wouldbeavailable in 
notes.Any ideas?What am I missing?  any help here would be greatly
