Extract Field Date From Repeating Section

Jump to solution

I need to two fields in a repeating section to get written to a list.

  • ResponsibleBU
  • CompletionDate

I'm not well skilled in XML so can someone please tell me what I should fill in in the second image below?

XML Source - obviously I need to reference the variable "WorkActivitiesDataExtract", but what is the correct reference/syntax I should use?

And the XPath to retrieve the value of the two fields.

As XML source use list field  (item property) which you have repeating section connected to.

as XPath expression use simply:

//ResponsibleBU

Hi Marian

Thanks for your reply. My thought is that I should use the XML stored in the WorkActivitiesDataExtract variable from the Extract Field from Repeating Section UDA, and then output using XPath. (see below).

I actually have a total of 4 fields that I need to output from WorkActivitiesDataExtract.

I tried using the item property like you suggested and it doesn't work.Also the workflow error-ed with the following message:

Coercion Failed: Unable to transform the input lookup data into the requested type.

I do not know your UDA and I do not know what output it provides in WorkActivitiesDataExtract 

as I said, if you use as XML source the filed where you store repeating section control content then this should work.

If I I output the XML to a column - can I use the same XPath to get what I need?
