How can I list the meta data from all documents in a document set in a Word 2013 doc?

Hi

I would like to auto-generate a Word 2013 document which lists all of the documents (selected metadata fields) in a SharePoint 2013 Document Set.  Can you help?

This is to create an Agenda for a meeting at which all of the documents in two document sets are listed (documents to be reviewed).

I can use quick parts to insert the meta data from a single item, but can't see how to include all items in a list I would need to do this for two separate document sets in one document (as two separate sections).

example:

Hi,

Try to look at this post. How to build responsive HTML5 report with barcode from list item using Nintex Forms and Workflows

You could use this post to generate HTML report with workflow, about what documents are in doc set.

If you will have some questions how to adopt this solution - ask i am the author of the post

So it used to be that we'd only really be able to create tables in email using HTML tagging.

Now, we have Doc Gen. It's in both O365 and On-Prem - and you can create a table easily in a Word document. All it takes is putting each column into a collection (ie Cost is one collection, Proposer is one collection) and then telling the table which is which. It then generates it for you. Pretty neat. 

Granted this is from 2015 but thought I'd give DocGen a shout out in case anyone else ends up here.
