Programmatically replace the design of Lotus Notes databases

Lotus Notes Domino lacks the out-of-the-box capabilities needed to perform certain functions, such as dynamically updating rich-text fields from the back-end without closing a document. This lack of functionality can send administrators on a quest for an easier solution.

A similar situation arises when trying to programmatically replace the design of a Lotus Notes database. IBM doesn’t provide a LotusScript method or C-API function to accomplish this task. In fact, the only way to replace a database design is by manually choosing File -> Database -> Design Replace for each specific database. However, this manual method doesn’t make much sense when replacing the design of several databases.

The following LotusScript code can be used to replace the design of multiple databases. The script actually deletes all design notes from the target database and copies them from the source database.
