Nintex Forms – load SQL Server table contents into repeating section

Nintex Forms

This post is a “how to” tutorial, showing how  can a data from SQL Server table be loaded into a “Repeating section” control in Nintex Forms.

How To: use Nintex Mobile signature in Document Generation

Nintex Document Generation

I recently was asked a question: how can I use the signature from the Nintex Mobile inside a document being generated by the Generate Document action? Unfortunately this is not yet feasible only using Nintex products.
