Help! How to pull metadata from subfolders in a document library?

I am new to Nintex Workflows 2010 for Sharepoint 2010. I am wondering if there is a way to pull metadata from subfolders in a document library and export it as an Excel or other format file.


This is how I have my document libary organized: Top level folder -> subfolder -> individual items (Word, Excel, etc.). At the subfolder level, I have columns/metadata attached to each folder. I tried using Query List on the site, but it only pulled data from the bottom level/individual items, and didn't pull any metadata from the subfolder level.


Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again



P.S. I know that folders aren't ideal in SharePoint, but unfortunately this is one of the limitations that I do not have the authority to change.
