1-2-3 has a feature where you can create a new @function based upon a lotusscript function.  I would like to see the same feature in Notes/Domino.  Allow me in the Database script library to create a lotusscript function and mark it as being available as an @function within that database.

I like this idea. I never knew this was in 1-2-3.

I'm just curious about implementation. How would one mark a function? Or would it be the whole Script Library? Or a new special type of Script Library: LS, Java, Formula (written as LS)?

Anyway... cool.

Maybe have a new section that says enter lotusscript functions here that can be used as @functions?

This is how 1-2-3 currently does it.

Yep, this would be useful - we could build a library of functions then.

How did I know (before even looking) that this would be by Carl Tyler?

I've thought of this same thing in the past. In particular, it could be handy in a view column (shared columns may mitigate it somewhat, but I could still see some uses).

I had hoped for this feature when they announced R4 would have LS.

If only we could vote multiple times for a topic this would be the one!
