Re: fetch excel column data and show in nintex form text field

Hi @hema2930,


It is possible, however only by using JavaScript. The solution is based on jszip.js, xlsx.js, shim.js, moment.js, sp.js, sp.runtime.js and jquery-2.2.2.min.js.

A few years I intended to include it in a solution I was working on, but in the end the Excel file content needed to be added to a Nintex Form.

It's not a completely described solution, but hopelfully enough to put you on the right track.

If I'm not mistaken, you can find more info and latest version of xlsx.js on the following GitHub site: https://github.com/SheetJS/js-xlsx
