Populate Word Template - Repeating tables

Hey all,

   So I am working out of 10+ list that I need to pull into a single word template.  I was able to get the populating word template going, however....I noticed that with repeating data (such as employee information supporting a program) the information isn't working out.

 

   So I have figured out the OData on pulling in the filtered data per program, however, how can I get it to pull in the list items that would be a repeating table and populate that into a table in the word document?

 

Thanks in advance!

Is this the same connector?  Sems like it may now.

Flow does support Repeating templates now, here is the blog post showing how to use it to create an invoice with multiple lines:

Hi Everyone!

If i understand you right, the problem is in repeating data that you need to populate into a Word template. I think you can solve this with Plumsail Documents. There is templating syntax that allows you to work with repeating data (the example exactly with an employee, haha). But before getting deep into it, i advise you to read the article that explains a flow in Power Automate. Plumsail Documents offers free 30-day trial, no credit card required, so you will have enough time to implement your case.
