You need to use file handling for this. and call the sub routine in every event execution and save the file .

Hi coolminded

Here is a simple way to add text in a text file:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim LogPath$
  2.     LogPath= App.Path & "\Log\"
  3.     Open LogPath & YourOutputFileName & ".txt" For Output As #1
  4.     Print #1, "Your text Line 1"
  5.     Print #1, "Your text Line 2"
  6.     Print #1, "Your text Line N"
  7.     Close #1
You can enhance the code if you want to add it on a same textfile. Hope this helps.

Of course, if you're going to be calling this routine to add onto an existing log, you need it to open for Append rather than for Output.
