Customer: I want to be sure, we don't need to have any Notes developers for this?
Me: That's right. Our Export to CSV sample database will let you do it without touching any scripts.
Customer: That's good. Now, how do I get it into SharePoint?
Me: It is a properly formatted CSV file, so it is fairly easy to import into a SharePoint List and either use it there or move it into a custom SharePoint library. We can show your developers a sample script if that would help.
Customer: Wait, I thought you said we didn't need developers.
Me: I meant your SharePoint developers. Unless you just want to use it in a SharePoint List.
Customer: No, we want the app to do just what it does in Notes, but in SharePoint. At least at first, though we have a long list of user requests once we get it there. But we don't have any SharePoint developers.
Me (eyebrows raised): So, have you planned for consultants to work with you?
Customer: No, we have no budget for consultants.
Me (silently to myself): No Notes developers, no SharePoint developers, no consulting budget, but a mandate to migrate your applications and implement a "long list of user requests". This is where sacrificing chickens under a full moon and invoking the ancient magic comes in.
