HCL Notes V12.0.2 and embedded views / UPDATED !!

After migrating a Domino environment to 12.0.2 and upgrading the Notes Clients we could see the following issue. In an application where documents from another application should have been displayed in an embedded view the embedded view was not filled and kept empty.

I received the following information after opening a case:

—> Yes, its know bug in Notes client 12.0.2. This issue has been reported via SPR#PSHECLULWM and is being investigated by HCL Software. Customers can subscribe to this defect article to keep track of updates. It is being Proposed to be fixed in 12.0.2 FP1.


We could not reproduce this issue with 12.0.1FP1. So beware to upgrade your Notes Clients if you use embedded views !!

After creating this blog post I received 2 informations ( thanks to Reid Canavan and John Paganetti ): try to put either one or both entries to the NOTES.INI of your client and restart HCL Notes. this should fix the issue.



  1. I’ve been dealing with HCL over this and have provided them with a reproducible sample database. The issue of empty embedded views is different from the ones in the links above introduced in 12.0.2 which caused partial data to display. The issue of empty embedded views only occurs if “Automatically refresh fields” is set on the form and the view name/category are set on the embedded view via Computed for Display fields. There is no issue if “Automatically refresh fields” is not set or fields used to calculate view/category for the embedded view are Computed or Computed when Composed. The issue has been reproduced in 9.0.1, 10.0.1, 11.0.1 and 12.0.2. It has been forwarded to product development under internal ticket SPR # ASHECP5JNV. A defect article is being prepared by HCL.


  2. We also found it works with all types of computed fields if “Automatically refresh fields” is turned off on the form but not if the flag is on.


  3. We have this issue of a completely empty embedded view with Notes 12.0.1FP1. We found it only applies if fields which are Computed for Display are used for the values of view name and category. If the fields are changed to Computed it works fine.
