Efficient data lookup using Lotus Notes @Formulas
Raphael Savir posted a IMHO very good article on IBM developerWorks regarding coding faster lookups in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino using @DbLookup.
He writes about
- Error checking
- Minimizing lookup-frequency
- Replacing inefficient drop-down lists with buttons, picklists, layout regions or pop-ups
- @Eval to clean up code
- using one lookup to get multiple fields
- optimizing lookup-views
- profiles and lookup databases
Even if you are a senior Lotus Notes programmer, take a few minutes and read „Coding faster lookups in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino”. IMHO, it is worth your time.
