Automatically opening a particular view

Last updated: 6 Feb 1999

Approach automatically opens the form that you had up on the screen the last time you saved the .apr file (or .vew in v2.1). So next time you make some changes make sure the right form is on the screen when you save it.

If you find this annoying, or it isn't working for some reason, you can use either a macro or script to automatically switch you to the desired form.

Macro method: Set up a macro to automatically change to that form when the database is opened. (See "Automatic macro on opening/closing View file").

LotusScript method: Place the following script in the initialize event of your database application:

Set currentwindow.activeview = currentdocument.YOURFORMNAME
