Migrate from Notes or Export Rich Text from Notes Document to Microsoft Word.
The fact that Integra for Notes doesn’t need any design changes in the databases you wish to export from, makes it a perfect tool for migrating the data from within your Notes environment to the file system.
Use Integra for Notes for instance for quick dumps to Excel, csv, Extraction of embedded objects, attachments, or the merging of multiple documents into an archive in Word.. We were the tool of choice for many migrations, ask us what would be the possibilities in your specific scenario.
There are multiple ways in which Integra for Notes can assist you to migrate away from Lotus Notes. Depending on your specific requirements we can utilize either Word-, Excel-, TXT- or XML export formats. For instance, in the scenario of a document library database, the Word export provides the capability to fill up meta data fields of Word, while filling up separate Notes fields to specific Wordfields. The Word export also allows for the detachment of embedded or attached objects within the Notes document, and than link, attach or embed these files in the new Word document(s) or even include the entire content within that same Word document. Scenario's like these would for instance also allow for dynamic naming of the saved files (for instance depending on certain fields within the Notes documents). It is even possible to combine multiple Notes documents within one Word document, allowing you to store all response documents to a certain main document in the same Word document.
Excel could proof to be the tool of choice when the result of the Export needs further enhancements and Excel is already widely used within the organisation. Integra for Notes allows for the user to add calculations (and graphs) while generating the endresult. Excel is great for the export of large numbers of fields and a fair amount of documents. However, Excel is limited in the number of rows and columns available (see related document in our extended FAQ-database).
XML, TXT or CSV
In scenarios of migrating hugh amounts of data for archiving or to make it available for another environment, the TXT, CSV or XML export can generate a line within the file for each Notes document, exporting all the fields specified by the user.
