Display repeating section in Word document

Hi,

I have a nintex task form as part of a workflow which includes a repeating section control. I am storing the xml output from that control in a multi-line text variable and using the Query XML action to parse it with xslt to convert it to html. Basically like this post​ explains.

I am then saving that html to a multi-line text property (rich text) against a document content type I have setup in a library and displaying it in the document itself using a word quick part (Inset > Quick Parts > Document Property). I am using quick parts for a few other document properties that are set during the course of the workflow. However, for this property it's outputting the 'raw' html code in the document and not a nice neat table. I have SharePoint Standard edition so don't have access to the Word automation service application to use Content Controls which I've seen mentioned in other posts.

Is there any clever way I might be missing to convert and display this output in a friendly way in word?

Thanks

I don't know if you use Nintex Online, but this might help you if you do.

You can do this on-prem with Document Generate action which was released in 3.2.0.0 for SP2013.
