This bit of code will help you if you need to pull or retrieve data into a workflow variable that has come in via a delimited format.

 

AuthorVadim Tabakman
Long Description

Sometimes if you get data from lists, web services, databases or elsewhere, that comes to you in a delimited form.  Either comma delimited, as in CSV files, or semi-colon delimited, as from some accounting systems or some other delimiter.

 

Notice that the first data entry field to fill is in the pattern.  When doing a split, this is the delimiter.  The character or characters that will be used to split a piece of text.  The operation is "Split" and the Input text, I've simply typed in some text with the comma separating them.

 

The result of this needs to be stored in a Nintex Workflow collection variable.  For more information on the collection variable, take a look at these :
