Re: How to export Repeater section XML format data to Excel

Hi Sreedhar Kanaparthi,

For one solution I recently build one I implemented the requirement to have repeating section data available for Excel export by copying each row to a list with some of the "parent" metadata (including ID). This way the business could run reports on the data. Whenever data in a repeating sections is changed I delete the associated list items and created them again.

Another alternative would be to create with a JavaScript button to export repeating section data for a selected item (or multiple) from a (view) page.

Jean-Pierre Huls I am looking to create the javascript button you mentioned. Can you share the JS to export the repeating table to csv or excel?

Hi Josh Henderson,

As it's one of the requirements in a current project, I'll still have to create it. However, I do have the snippets to

  1. Extract rows from a repeating sections (already using it in a Nintex Form).
  2. Create Excel files in JS.

Thing is that I'm quite busy at the moment; I first need to change the code first to get the customer specifics out before sharing. I'll see if I find the time in the next 2 weeks in my spare time .
