Below is a snippet of code that uses the Before Delete event of an Active Constituent record to record constituent data to an excel file before it is deleted.

Private Sub RaisersEdgeRecord_BeforeDelete(oRecord As Object, bcancel As Boolean)



   Dim oconstituent As CRecord

   Set oconstituent = oRecord


   Dim oExcel As Excel.Application

   Set oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

   Dim lFindRow As Long

  'The following section opens up an Excel file and then stores the fields that we chosen.

   With oExcel

       .Workbooks.Open FileName:="c:\delete.xls"

       lFindRow = .Cells(1, 2) + 4

       .Cells(lFindRow, 1) = lFindRow - 3

       .Cells(lFindRow, 2) = oconstituent.Fields(RECORDS_fld_FULL_NAME)

       .Cells(lFindRow, 3) = oconstituent.Fields(RECORDS_fld_IMPORT_ID)

       .Cells(lFindRow, 4) = Date

       .Cells(lFindRow, 5) = Time

       lFindRow = lFindRow - 3

       .Cells(1, 2) = lFindRow




   End With

   Set oExcel = Nothing

   Set oconstituent = Nothing

End Sub
