Lotus Notes Exception - Query is not understandable


Usually search related.


If you use the ?SearchView command and try to search for reserved keyword/symbols like "field" or "/" you will see this error. Avoid use of reserved words in searches.

I receive this error when copy/paste within database. Fixup/compact (with options) did not help. Client 5.0.12. Unable to copy/paste. Any solution?

I got this Error when having Keywords like "FIELD", "CONTAINS", "AND", "OR" using in ftSearch. Just replace them with their mathematic alternatives ( "&", "|", "=") and replace "FIELD" with nothing (""). Worked for me and R 6.5.4

I had similar problem in my company for a system and it occurred only to a specific user while the others ran the script without problems. Later we found out that her system time format was different with the bank's standard. Changed the format and problem disappeared.
