Almost a year ago I talked about how you can get Domino's UntilKey URL parameter to make its StartKey counterpart do what you'd expect it to -- return only exact matches from the first column in the view. If you had a sorted view of animals you could return all those who were Cats use a URL like this:
All's well and good and I've used the the trick repeatedly since, not knowing how I managed without it.
Then this week I was talking about using lists in the first column of a view to allow flexible lookups. Again, all was good. Until I tried to search for the last document in the view. In the example it's a car called Zonda. Type in "Z" and nothing comes back.
The bug: It looks like the UntilKey trick doesn't work on views sorted by a multi-value column. It just won't return the last document.
Just another reason not to trust Domino to give you want you want and to go you own way. For me I'll be using my Ajax NotesViewNavigator Object. No doubt there's a performance hit, but at least it does what you want it to.
