Does anyone know how to read a NSF file using VBA? It seems I need

NotesSQL

(http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lot...o/notessql.html) but I

don't have any of the needed licenses: Notes or Domino. Thanks.

      YOu may still be able to download a trial version of Lotus Notes, if

      this is just a one time need.

    • Hi There,

      You need to have a copy of Lotus Notes (the client) installed on the

      system that you are going to use. This is because the notes

      'database' (NSF File) is actually a kind of proprietary format and you

      need the right tools to be able to work with it.

      Once you have Notes installed it is actually quite easy to work with

      notes information, and all the knowledge you need is contained in the

      IBM Red Book article ' COM Together - with Domino'. You can get it at

      www.redbooks.ibm.com and the article number is SG24-5670-00.

      I believe that it is also possible to download a free trial of the

      latest Lotus Notes client software which would be sufficient for the

      installation of the needed library files. As far as gaining ongoing

      usage of the product you would need to either speak to IBM about it or

      check the licensing agreements.

      I hope this gets you on the right track. :-)

      Cheers
