Lotus Notes data download / extract

1. Notes View to CSV

Tabular data from a Notes view can be exported to a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file format. It should be noted that this type of export only contains data from Notes views. That means that other data from Notes document (such as rich text fields – RTFs), other than view columns won’t be exported.

To export data from a Notes view in CSV format:

  1. Select the documents you want to export in a Notes view and then click File > Export
  2. Save the file as “Comma Separated Value”
    1. Choose between exporting “All documents” or “Selected documents”
    2. To include the view titles in the exported file, check “Include View titles”
    3. Specify the Export character set (Default, UTF-8, Unicode)
  3. Click OK

2. Notes data to PDF/XML/HTML

Although you can export raw Lotus Notes data to a CSV file, you’ll probably want to export all Notes documents with metadata, particularly for long-term archiving, records management, content migration, application retirement, and so on.

So if you need to export all data and file attachments from Lotus Notes and Domino databases, here is a tool that can be used for this – Seascape for Notes:
