I have 6-7 multi-line text with plain text type columns present inside a repeating section. My question is how can I extract the info and display it in columns? I'm following this tutorial Populating Repeating Section Controls with List Data
However, I'm receiving XML values as output.
The output from a repeating section will always be in XML, in workflow you can use the Query XML action to parse the values in XML nodes and then operate on them from within the collection they get stored in.
Hello Ryan, thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, I don't have the Query XML action in the list of the actions. Hence the reason for workaround. Kindly suggest an alternative
are you working on O365?
if so, have a look at docu how to activate the action http://help.nintex.com/en-US/O365/#O365WorkFlow/Workflow%20Actions%20-%20STD/Query%20XML.htm?Highlig...
Hello Marian, thank you for the reply. I have already been thru that link. Since I'm just a site collection admin, I couldn't go to the store and activate the action.
Please suggest an alternative
I would suggest to contact your farm admin to enable it for you. it should be part of the product.
you may try to play with string functions but that will definitely not as straightforward and effective as using query xml action.
