I would like to retrieve the 'Department' value of the creator of a list-item.
Therefore I created a column named 'Department' of type person/group, show field 'department'
From a worflow created with SharePoint Designer, when a item is added to the list, I fill
the column 'Department' with the field 'created by'. The result is that the column 'Department'
nicely displays the Department of the creator of the added item.
When I do the same for a library, the column Department don't get filled, and the workflow
keeps the state 'Started'.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
When I add a new document te the library, the column 'Department' stay's empty and the workflow keeps the status 'Starting'
But when I save a new document, open it again, edit it and save it again, the column 'Department' shows the department of the creator !!
