Email updates through Excel using Lotus Notes
I send email updates through my Excel application using Lotus Notes. I’m looking for a speedy and reliable means to make sure if the user is logged in to Notes. If the user is not logged into Notes before they make an action Excel waits for the user to log in to Notes.
Unluckily, Notes were sometimes begin 'under' Excel and all the user see egg timer cursor, and they believe that emailing is just taking a bit of time. Certain part of the process times out after 20 seconds or so and this creates an error in Excel. I can assume this as a kludge way of understanding if Notes works; it takes more time to realize it.
I even consider using “Activate Application” ("Notes") but while this confirms that the application is running, it still returns even though no one logged in. What I am really eager is the availability of some Domino object that can only be accessible if the user is logged in, but won't turn on the Notes log in dialogue in order for me to make a test before even using the email code.
