Help! How to pull metadata from subfolders in a document library?

Hello,

I am new to Nintex Workflows 2010 for Sharepoint 2010. I am wondering if there is a way to pull metadata from subfolders in a document library and export it as an Excel or other format file.

This is how I have my document libary organized: Top level folder -> subfolder -> individual items (Word, Excel, etc.). At the subfolder level, I have columns/metadata attached to each folder. I tried using Query List on the site, but it only pulled data from the bottom level/individual items, and didn't pull any metadata from the subfolder level.

Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again

Jon

P.S. I know that folders aren't ideal in SharePoint, but unfortunately this is one of the limitations that I do not have the authority to change.

Hello,

To be able to get the items in folders using the Query List action, you have to check the "Recursive" checkbox in the configuration of the action.

Hope this will work
