Hello! I have a form with a Choice column and 4 text boxes with show/hide rules based on the Choice. I am trying to figure out how to send the text of ‘shown textbox’ to a Word document template. Not sure if it’s possible since it’s not a column. Is there a workaround? 

Thank you!

Hi @imflowers 

You should be able to insert columns and variables values into the Word template using the Tagger

Hi @imflowers 


Data for controls not bound to SharePoint columns is stored in a hidden column called Form Data.
The column contains text formatted in XML. You can use the Query XML action to extract the data you need from the column.
