  • Requirements: • Lotus Notes or Domino Web application • MS Excel installed on the client • SWING Integrator MS Excel advantage: • Users are familiar with it • No training is required to create new reports • Reporting AND dynamic data analysis
  • Step 1: Copy SWING Integrator design elements to your database Select the destination database and let the Wizard do the rest Open the Integrator database and start the Setup Wizard
  • Step 2: Add the Integrator action button In Domino Designer, add an action button to your view... ...and copy the code snippet from the Integrator sample library.
  • Step 3: Create an Excel template Open your database; notice that the Templates view has been added. Let’s create a new Excel Report template. You may start from our sample templates, and play with different report layouts. This cross-tab report will employ Excel PivotTable. Save the template to the Template Setup document. Then, set up the field mapping.

  • What we have done: • Copied design elements using Setup Wizard • Added an action button • Added an Excel template and set up the data transfer What we have got: • Excel-based reports and data analysis from Lotus Notes • Centralized report templates for easy maintenance • Data transfer, including transformations between multivalue fields and tables What we didn’t see yet...
  • We didn’t see yet: • Saving reports to Notes • Exporting to PDF • Excel can run in the background (e.g. for 1-step Chart.gif) • Data source: views, categories, document collections, arrays • Word-based documents and reports Points to remember: • The application can be easily extended simply by adding new Office templates, without programming. • A comprehensive API and open design elements let developers customize the solution to fit their specific needs.
