First the good news: a new release is on its way. No big changes, but some interesting extra features requested by users and some bug fixes.
But this post is a little warning for all Notes 7.0 to 7.0.2 users out there: Claude Sammut informed me about a bug in the tool: in short, after running Viewnify, opening a view in designer and saving it, the view selection formula can get corrupted: the selection formula changes to the formula of the last column of the view.
At first I thought it was a general DXL problem and I tried to create my own fix, but, to my relief, it’s a bug in the Domino DXL engine that was introduced in 7.0 and fixed in 7.0.3. I did a test yesterday and, indeed, after upgrading to 7.0.3 Viewnification seems like a smooth process once again.
Also, I found this confirmation in the fix list for 7.0.3: SPR# STOI6REJ7E – View selection formula used to get copied over by the column formula on import of a view. Fixed the problem reported by setting a correct flag.
