Copying list items with multiple value lookups and choices

We have list A where change requests are moved to list B (preserve data in list A). List A has four multiple value list lookup columns and four multiple value choice columns. I am not having any luck getting my workflow to copy to list B to work with those columns. I have found http://sprider.org/2012/09/27/how-to-update-multi-value-lookup-field-using-nintex/, but it seems incomplete and I am not sure what I am missing. Any help?

Re: Copying list items with multiple value lookups and choices

I am not using a device that will work for good screen shots, I will try and do that later today or this week.

First thing is to use a list webservice call to GetListItems. Save this into a Single Line of Text variable.

Then you want to use Query XML to query that Variable for the result. Use XPath Process and put:

//@ows_YOURCOLUMNNAME


Store this result in another Single Text variable.

Then you can create the item and use this variable to fill in the multichoice or lookup column.

Hope that helps!
