How to get XML from Historical Forms Without Named Controls

Hi there!




I've recently taken over a fairly large chunk of Nintex work, and I now have a request to build a spreadsheet from list data. That's fine, as these folks have been using Nintex Forms foreeeeever.




The form they want the information drawn from, at least 75% of them are unnamed AND unconnected.

Originally I thought I would just name the form fields (done now) and draw the XML (hoping it would go retroactively) .. but alas, that does not seem to work.

Then I thought maybe if I build out columns and connect them to the controls, that'd pull the data over.  Nope.


So now I'm trying to just pull over a big ole' chunk of XML but it's bringing back this:


XML = <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><FormVariables><Version /><b1e6e78c-911a-4353-9194-d6dbdb62a94d type="System.Boolean">True</b1e6e78c-911a-4353-9194-d6dbdb62a94d><f19cf139-b594-42f6-87d8-d04106c6d024 type="System.Boolean">True</f19cf139-b594-42


And thaaaaat's it.


This is a form with 22 controls I need to draw from.


What the heck, folks. Any thoughts here? What's the best way of getting this historical XML form data into columns for over 200 records?
