Nintex Repeating Section and updating FormData from Workflow

Hi All,  Hoping someone can assist in my issue.  I have a list 'Movies' and a simple Nintex form with a repeating section .  So this is a screen where a user can enter one-to-many data  (aka parent/child, master/detail).   In example below (Screenshot1) I have created Movies as the parent record, and characters are the child records using the repeating section and some simple text fields.  Because this is a repeating section the 'characters' data is stored in the FormData Field in the Movies List.


What I want to do is simply create a workflow to update the 'Goodorbad' FormData field in the Movies list after a user has Saved the form.  I have used the UDA published from other Nintex contributors and I can extract the XML attributes and save to another list 'Characters' so I know how that works (screenshot 2).  However I cant workout how to update the 'GoodorBad' field within the FormData Field in the Movies List.  I've tried 'UpdateXML' and then 'Update item' (FormData) but I cant get it to work.


Any help appreciated. Thanks Scott
