Have you seen notes 8.x typeahead error like this “TypeaheadQueueController.start” has encountered a problem An internal error occured during: “TypeaheadQueueController.start. java.lang.NullPointerException ?


Don’t bother to reinstall your JVM, cause the root problem is not coming from your JVM but is coming from your personal contacts. When you importing personal contacts from other format, please check whether the full name fields is compute correctly. Somehow, some contacts have field fullname is still blank.

How to check it?
Open your personal contact (local names.nsf) from your notes client. Hold down SHIFT  + CTRL, then click “view” -> “Go To ..”. It will bring you to list of hidden views. Select view ($VIMPeople). Now, you can see the contacts from field name. Please notice the picture, incompletely fields such as fullname. firstname, middleinitial, etc cause the error.

Create simple agent to refresh documents which still have blank fullname will fix the problem.

Hope this help.

update: here is the agent script:

Sub Initialize
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim collection As NotesDocumentCollection
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set collection = db.UnprocessedDocuments

For i = 1 To collection.Count
Set doc = collection.GetNthDocument( i )
‘Msgbox doc.FullName(0)
Call doc.ReplaceItemValue(“FullName”,doc.Firstname(0)+” ” + doc.MiddleInitial(0) + ” ” + doc.LastName(0))
Call doc.save(True,True)
End Sub
