Loop through SharePoint list to populate a table in Word Document

Jump to solution

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to create a workflow which queries a Sharepoint list (multiple columns and rows) and generates a document from a word template with the list data appearing in a table.   I can successfully query Sharepoint and loop through the resulting Collection data but can't figure out how to get all that data passed to the Document Generation task to populate a table.  I haven't found anything in help/videos that covers this scenario.    Attached is a picture of the workflow.  The email task is just to help me debug to see if the Loop is iterating through the rows of the list (it is).

 

Thanks,

 

Jeff

@jeffs Currently NWC Document Generation doesn't support table/row replication. If you use the Document Generation action in  Nintex Workflow for o365, you will be able to make a table(https://help.nintex.com/en-US/office365/Designer/Actions/DocumentGeneration.htm).

@leighburke  Thanks for the quick response.   That's really unfortunately and stops this POC in it's tracks.  I'll take a look at the o365 capabilities, but I don't think it will be a good fit for this customer.

Thanks again.

Hi ! Are we expecting this feature soon in NWC ? A Customer is evaluating the product and this is one of the primary requirement in their flow.
