I took the following code from http://groups.google.ca/group/micros...1bfd424254a765

Initially it worked fine but it started to give error message after a while. The behavior is inconsistent as it worked fine 50% of the time. Could anyone tell me what could be the error? I am using MS Acsess 2003 and Lotus Note 7.0.2under Windows NT.
