View's Alias Name

View's Alias Name

View's Alias Name


In our database there are two agents scheduled for the same time.

In the first agent, the following view is open:
Set ThisView = ThisDb.GetView( "UpdateNames1" )

In the second agent:
Set ThisView = ThisDb.GetView( "UpdateNames2" )

However, I was not able to find the views with these names in our database. The only view that exists in our database "UpdateNames".

Is it possible that agents actually open that one same view "UpdateNames", simply referring to it as "UpdateNames1" and "UpdateNames2" ?

Please help me. I am not experienced in notes and feel confused as there is no one around here to help me.


RE: View's Alias Name

What version are you working with ?
R5 and 6 are a lot clearer than R4 in view names and aliases. The aliases are clearly indicated in the Designer.
In R4, you must (unfortunately) go through each view, open it, and check its properties before you can know what the alias is.
What is certain is that if both agents run without a hitch, you certainly have two views whose name or alias are defined as you said.
