We can use getitemvalue and checking the 0 index value like var(0). Another way we can do is like using a method available for notesitem class. it is notesitem.text. Read the usage in help file carefully. For multiple values in a list are separated by semicolons in the returned string. If an item’s value is large, the returned string may be truncated. For rich text items, this property skips non-text data such as bitmaps and file attachments. For HTML items, this property returns Null.
Dim nitem As NotesItem Set nitem = doc.GetFirstItem("t1") Msgbox nitem.Text ,,"nitem.Text " Msgbox nitem.Type If nitem.Text = "" Then Msgbox "empty" End If
