This document cannot be displayed in its original format because it contains a stored form

What happened

You tried to open a document that includes a stored form, but the current application does not allow you to open documents that include stored forms. An application manager may decide not to allow stored forms because they may contain data that can compromise the security of your computer.

When you click OK, HCL Notes® opens the document using the default form for the current application.

Note: The default application form may not include all the fields on the form the document was created with, and you may not see all the data in the document.

What you can do

  • If the default application form shows all the information you need, you don't have to do anything.
  • If you want to see more information (for example, if you want to see graphics that appear on the stored form), and you are the manager of the application (for example, the application is your mail application), click File > Application > Properties and select Allow use of stored forms in this database.
  • If you are not the manager of the application, ask the application manager to allow stored forms. If the manager denies your request, ask the creator of the document to send it to you without the stored form.
