How to combine several files into one PDF using Nintex and Muhimbi PDF Converter

Recently I am using Nintex workflow and Muhimbi to build a solution for a client. One of the requirement is to combine several files within the document set into one , this is really simple to do with Muhibmi PDF Converter and Nintex.

1. You need to activate the Muhimbi PDF Converter – Nintex Workflow Integration feature at the Web Application level.

2. Then, we need to retrieve the sever relative URL path for the document set as shown below.(You can use URL Path or Server Relative url property when you query the list)

3. Then, we need to build the combined PDF path.

4. Next, we need to build the paths for all documents we need to combine.

5. Finally, we need to perform the conversion using the Muhimbi Nintex action below


You can download the Nintex Workflow here.

@muhimbi PDF converter Merge files to PDF action does not work inside a IF or LOOP action when used in @Nintex workflow.Have to change all my @Nintex IF action to Set A CONDITION action to make @muhimbi PDF converter Merge files to PDF action works.I also checked with Muhimbi PDF converter support ,I was told that upgrade to the latest version of the product will solve the problem , I have not tried yet and will update here once I have tried it.

The error I am getting is An error has occurred in [Workflow Name].

*****************Update 13/01/2013****************

Another problem I am having is to invoke the workflow using the document set item rather than a document inside the document set.You will get the error message “An error has occurred in [Workflow Name]”. To resolve the problem you need to configure the Source List and Source List Item properties for the conversion as shown below.
