@dblookup should allow you to look up on multiple categorisations as you can using lotusscript view.getdocumentbykey. You should be allowed to enter in a text list so that each item is looked up in a catogorised view.

Yes that would allow you to deploy less views in your application. Simple and effective.

How many times have I wanted this one! Yes please.

This will break existing functionality. A list is already allowed as a key, but it returns multiple first-column lookups (rather than a single multi-key lookup as suggested here).

@3 - Well then let's make it a new function - @DbLookupMulti, or a new keyword to the existing @DbLookup, e.g. [LookupKeyIsMulti]
