Importing files into documents that have rich-text fields

You can import text files, word processing files, HTML files, graphics files, and spreadsheet files into documents that have rich-text fields, as long as the source file is stored in a location you can access, such as your local hard disk drive or file server.

When you import files into a document, HCL Notes® mimics the features of the original application. For example, an imported word processing file is displayed with the original fonts, colors, or headers.

Importing files into documents is useful when you want to work with data in Notes, rather than in the original application, and you won't need constant updates. If you want to update the data at a later time, you must import again.
