Read local .dat file

Jump to solution

Hi all,

while evaluating NintexForms, I need to test how to populate form columns from external data source. This could be in future a SQL table or something else via Web Service. But, at the moment the external data source is written to a local semicolon separated text file every night.

I tried to look for articles how to read local file (local in a share, that is \\share\...) with Nintex, but is this supported?

Any suggestions for a Nintex Connect article or similar how to use the SQL / Web Service request functionality? Maybe the Web Service request could point to a local share.

All the best,
