Do you have some example or a pointer or so. I don't know even how to

A caveat - I am slowly learning lisp - of any kind - and I have not programmed in over 45 years (college).

See the attached files - one is a template for entering data into a recfile and the other is a sample of how I use some of the data in that recfile. I also have a couple of remote-descriptors so that I don't have reinvent the wheel for every recfile.

Originally I set up an org capture template and switched modes for entries into a refile, but this was not a "good" solution. In the recutils list I mentioned org capture and perhaps it could be modified to recutils, but I never sent Jose a use case.
