How to Save Repeating Grid from Clipboard into Data Explorer
Hi, I'm new to PEGA. I have a problem of using repeating-grid-layout to list all the added items from clipboard, saving all of them into the data in PEGA. I'm using activity to loop and save, also already tracer that activity which only have 2 sequence; activity begins and activity ends. It seems that in the first step of activity there's a mistake. So here's my step:
Please CMIIW, first: I'm using loop For Each Embedded Page, the embedded page is my class path Case (SMMF-EventMan-Work-EventAdmin).
Secondly, the step page when looping is a PageList which contains the clipboard data.
Third, I want it to loop for all the details data in clipboard (ex: if there's .pxResults(5) then it will loop 5 times according to results)
After testing the case, there's neither errors information display nor the data is being saved in Class-Data. I wonder if my approach is wrong, or if there's another way to save Page List? (FYI: I'm using 7.2.1)

Hello LASSM, thanks for your fast reply. I want to save a multiple data on PageList so i'm using Activity to loop method Obj-Save. For saving a single page, there's no issue at all with the activity. For example, I have many contact list (firstName, lastName, phone, address, etc) and after inputing all in the repeating-grid-layout, the contact list data is now within the clipboard page and I want to save it to database in PEGA.
I've already thought of using DataTransform to save, but to save or browse PEGA can only use activity or java function. (Using obj-methods). Also while I try to use DataTransform, PEGA couldn't use local variables.

If you just need to save yes, the Obj-Save on pyWorkPage should be sufficient, you might need a Commit as well depending on the context. Can you attach a screen shot of your activity, on your previous screen shot I can only see the loop been configured.
