After migrating my work computer to Windows 7 from Windows XP, I was constantly facing two errors with Lotus Notes:
- Cannot locate form: memo
- Cannot find external name: NAMESORTVIEWPO
The errors were so irritating as it kept on popping up if I tried to open a new unread mail or if I tried to create a new mail.
