Extracting TRIM 'Record Actions' using VBA

Hi All

I was hoping that someone would be able to assist me with my below issue. I am looking to develop an excel template using VBA that loops through all documents saved in a TRIM container (i.e.2016/000001) and pulls the following information from the Properties > Record Actions view;

  1. Action (i.e. Approval/Authorisation);
  2. Estimated duration (for the action assigned or completed);
  3. Completed by location (who completed the action);
  4. Actual duration (how long it took to complete that action);
  5. Responsible location (work area responsible for completing the action);
  6. Status;
  7. Start date (when the action begins);
  8. Due date (when the action is due to be completed); and
  9. Completed on (when the action was completed)

I have tried using the 'Print Merge' function though the above fields are not able to be selected when executing. I have pasted some code below that extracts any record actions that have been assigned/completed though need to be able to incorporate the above:

Sub getrecordactions()

Dim RecNum As String

Dim db As TRIMSDK.Database

Dim oRecord As TRIMSDK.Record

Dim oRecordType As TRIMSDK.RecordType

Dim Actions As Variant

Dim RecActions As String

Dim i As Integer

Set db = New TRIMSDK.Database

Set oRecordType = db.GetRecordType("Document")

RecNum = "R16/755571" 'just a test record number

Set oRecord = db.GetRecord(RecNum)

'MsgBox oRecord.Actions 'gets Record Actions but won't split up fields

RecActions = oRecord.Actions


Actions = Split(RecActions, vbCr) 'splits the record actions based on enter 

For i = 0 To UBound(Actions)

    Cells(1, i + 1).Value = Actions(i) 'pastes each record action across cells

Next i

End Sub

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks in advance.
