If Inside for each

string.Join(Environment.Newline, row.ItemArray);

Thank you vaidya!!!

It is working fine, but what exactly i need is to get each cell data one by one. The above expression outputs me single row data in the form of a list.But, what i want is when i repeat a loop it should display only 1 first time, Alex second time, Manager 3rd time…

Can you please help me out in this.

I tried using Assign activity, I got it. :grinning:

You can also try with nested for each activity. For reference see attached sample workflow.

Thank You so much Aksh :slightly_smiling_face:


How can we save all these into a list, to get each item based on the list index.

If you want to add items from one row to the List you have to put Add to collection Block into the second For each. But first of all you should initialize this List by using assign NewList = new List( of String/Object/whateveryouwnt) before first each.
am i right?
