Symphoy killed MS-Office

I decided to remove MS Office from my PC, because I would try to work with IBM Lotus Symphony more. It looks impressive and I like it. Actually I see only 1 little weak side in Symphony - it is her speed. It works a little slowly then MS Office.

I hope Symphony will have a good future...

here you can see video about Symphony

Use doc.getitemvalue("fldName") instead doc.fldName

I think many developers for receiving value from field usually wrote next code:
dim n as integer
n = doc.fldName(0)

but they have to know that this code has some weak sides:
- it slowly then doc.GetItemValue("fldName")(0) near 15-20%;
- if in new version of Lotus Notes will appear new method with name "fldName" the application will work wrong
