Export all contacts with a field that shows what groups they are members of

We essentially need to export all of our contacts and able to link them to which group they are from. 

 

I have programmatic access to the back end, but can't seem to find where the info is stored on what groups which contacts are members of. Also can't find a way to export that information from ACT its self.

 

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

Re: Export all contacts with a field that shows what groups they are members of

Group membership isn't stored in the contact table. The group membership is stored in the group table. You might be able to accomplish what you need using the utility OakMerge.  If you just needed to know the contact information along with the groups they were members of that could be done with a custom Durkin Impact Report.

This would be very time consuming but you could create a Lookup of each Group and then do an Edit/Replace to place the name of the Group into one of the unused contact fields.  The only problem would be for contacts that belong to multiple groups.
