How do you find out if a document has been foldered?

You can use the FolderReferences property of a document to do this. This code will put all documents that have not been foldered into a new "Lost Documents" folder:

Sub Initialize
  Dim sess As New NotesSession
  Dim db As NotesDatabase
  Set db = sess.CurrentDatabase
  db.FolderReferencesEnabled = True
  Dim coll As NotesDocumentCollection
  Set coll = db.AllDocuments
  Set doc = coll.GetFirstDocument
  While Not(doc Is Nothing)
    i = 0
    If doc.FolderReferences(0) <> "" Then 'doc is in at least one folder, so pull it from this collection
      Call coll.DeleteDocument(doc) 'just pulls it from the folder)
    End If
    Set doc = coll.GetNextDocument(doc)
  Call coll.PutAllInFolder("Lost Documents") 'all those that remain in the collection
End Sub
