I have created a multi-line textbox control in Nintex Forms and a multi-line text column in SharePoint List. But I am not able to connect them. Would you able to help? Please share pictures and/ or exported files since that's will help to understand.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The title mentions a repeating section but your question talks abliut Multi Lines of Text (MLT) columns and controls?
If you just want to connect the MLT column just drag the control from the List columns section of the tool box onto your canvas. The control will be automatically connected.
If you do want to connect a repeating section control to a MLT you first have to make sure that the MLT column in SharePoint is configured as Plain Text and not Rich text.
Open your nintex form and delete the Multi Lines of Text Control that will appear by default.
Add a repeating section control and open its configuration and connect it to the MLT.
Add your controls to the repeating section.
Now when you submit a form you will see XML in the MLT column which will be the structure of the repeating section.
This works! Thank you very much.
I have another issue though. I entered 3 updates (update 1,2,3) using Nintex Forms. Repeating Section of MLT in the Nintex Forms is connected to Plain Text Col1 in SharePoint List. Along, with updates that I entered manually, it shows me auto-generated XML code which I don't want because it's confusing to my audience and doesn't bring any worth. How can I turn off this automatic generation of XML script in Sharepoint Column? Please refer to attachment: (1) Data entry using Nintex Forms (2) Data as seen in the Sharepoint List. Please advise. Thank you again!
If I disconnect the Repeating section from the SharePoint column:
1. I cannot connect the Multi-Line Textbox control to the Multi-Line Text SharePoint column. I can only connect the Repeating section to the Multi-Line text Column. Please refer to the attached screenshot.
2. If I don't connect the repeating section to the column, then when I create a new item, whatever I enter in the multi-line textbox control is not written in the Sharepoint column. That is not what I desire.
I tried downloading and opening the workflow present in the link that you shared but it's not working on my end. Could you please create and send workflow to me so that I can look through it and can tailor it to my needs? I referred to lots of posts on how to parse the XML but I am stuck with this part.
I have a multi-line textbox control in Nintex Form and would like to show the text entry with no XML script in a SharePoint Column. It would be helpful if you can create a simple form and workflow and if you can share it with me.
