I have a form that is using the form control "Repeating Section" I am trying to find a way to read this information in a workflow.
I would like to do calculations or just concatenate the entries into another field.
Any idea how I can achieve this?

The above article is good for learning how to parse the XML contained by a repeating section. If you want to have the data in a separate child list in SharePoint I suggest the TekDog controls. http://www.tekdoginc.com/nintex-form-controls
Repeating table data is stored as XML. Set the table to a multi-line plain text field, put in a loop, then use the query XML action to extract the values from the rows
@zakaria_botros - here is a blog showing how this can be done. The concept is the same in both on-prem and o365 https://community.nintex.com/t5/Community-Blogs/How-to-get-data-from-a-form-repeating-section-in-O36.... You can also view https://community.nintex.com/t5/Template-Gallery/Parsing-Nintex-Forms-Repeating-Section-Solution-O36... for help as well.
This doesn't solve the issue. The linked article's images are too low quality to be useful. The attached example ZIP files when renamed to NWF and imported throw an error.
