Lotus Notes Structured Text
Lotus Notes Structured Text is a special file format that can be imported into a Lotus Notes database. With this connector, the integration platform can write to a Lotus Notes Structured Text target file.
This connector sets field width in bytes. What actually varies is the number of characters that fit into a given field. For example, if a field width is 10 bytes and the encoding is Shift-JIS, the field can hold a minimum of 5 characters and a maximum of 10. This means that if you try to write 8 Japanese characters, data is truncated (the Kanji characters all take 2 bytes).
Connector-Specific Notes
Lotus Notes Structured Text is a legacy format that was developed before there was an official Lotus Notes API. Use this connector to connect to Lotus Notes data earlier than version 4.
