  • #4324

    I’m trying to use Formativ to provide a Find Results folder for my users that implements the steps show here: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/18564.html

    Problem is, that even cutting down the query to it’s simplest, the applet starts to run, and then hangs. If I kill off GW, when I rstart the folder exists, and sometimes even has the query I defined in it. But my real problem is that running the applet hangs GroupWise.

    So my questions are:

    1) Is there something special I need to know about creating Find Results folders?

    2) Is there a better way to do this than

    Const FOLDER_NAME_QUERY = "Daylight Saving Time Change Affected Appointments"

    Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)

    dim oQuery

    ' Creates a new Query object

    set oQuery = GroupWise.Account.CreateQuery

    ' Set up a Filter expression.

    oQuery.Expression = "(DUEEND_DATE >= 2007/03/11) AND (DUEEND_DATE <= 2007/04/01)"

    call oQuery.Locations.Add(GroupWise.Account.Mailbox)

    ' Run the query whenever the folder is selected.

    oQuery.StartOnOpen = true

    call oQuery.CreateFolder(FOLDER_NAME_QUERY, GroupWise.Account.Cabinet)

    call MsgBox ("The folder '" & FOLDER_NAME_QUERY & "' was created in the Cabinet.")

    set oQuery = Nothing

    End Sub

    Which version of the GroupWise client you are running (see Help – About GroupWise)?

    That helped.

    It is broken on two versions: GW 7.0.1 (build 364 – June 13, 2006); GW 7.0.1 IR 1 (build 553 December 14, 2006)

    But it ran without error on GW 6.5.1 (July 11, 2003).

    Seems like a bug in GroupWise client 7 or later version. We need to confirm this behaviour and inform Novell about the bug. You can also post a message into the Novell Object API forum: http://forums.novell.com/category/developer.tpt

    Is this now a recorded bug – as I have just hit the same problem. Is there an know work around to create a find result folder as this is a key requirement of our current project

    We are not sure about any work around. May be you should post a message to the Novell Developer Support (http://forums.novell.com/category/developer.tpt) for any advice.
