We have put a Domino/Notes face on a DB2 application using Domino 5.0.10
(soon Domino 6) and are having problems with text fields.
Since this is based on a DB2 application running on an iSeries the text
fields have a fixed length however in the Notes client the only way to
limit the input is by issuing an error message after the user's input
:-( or by truncating :-( :-( in the code. The users really hate having
to retype their text or guessing at how much will fit and usually end up
with very short lines that waste a lot of database space.
In addition there are areas where a memo is attached to a master record.
Again, with a DB2 backend this is structured as an unlimited number of
fixed length records, each representing a line.
Surely with the number of Domino applications interfacing with other
databases that use fixed length fields someone has developed a better
way of making the Notes client keep the fields compatible.
I would appreciate any code _snipits_ or addresses that could help with
