Scenario: There is a custom task list (not created by me) that has a Multiple Lines of Text column called [Description] that is displayed in views as a "View Entries..." hyperlink to the DispForm. On the DispForm there are hyperlinks to each
previous version as well as the modifying user.
Problem: I need to create a workflow that e-mails the person to whom the task is assigned to with looping functionality whenever it is reassigned. All of this works fine, except I am unable to insert the [Description] column info into the e-mail. I
have tried adding the [Description] column lookup to the body, as well as assigning the contents to a string variable and displaying it, but none of these things work. I also discovered that when I switch to Datasheet view the entire [Description] column
When I turn off "Append Changes to Existing Text" to the column, the "View Entries..." hyperlink disappears workflow functions just fine, but since the descriptions can run rather long people don't want to remove this functionality.
Any help on the subject would be apprecated!
