Access Denied while using Sharepoint designer 2007 to create a work flow

I am using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to create a work flow that sends emails to different people in a group depending on status of a record. For example, when some one reports a problem, an email is posted to concerned person and as soon as he/she checks the problem and updates the status an email is sent to next department and so on. Starting the work flow creation wizard is no problem but as soon as I press 'Finish' to create workflow I get 'Access Denied' message box. Any Ideas? I am using WSS 3.0 on 2003 Server.

Conditional formatting on a joined subview using SharePoint Designer 2007 does not work

I have 2 SharePoint lists, one is a parent task list and the other a child task lists.  In SharePoint Designer 2007 I have created a combined datasource from these 2 lists.  From there I created a new ASPX page inserting the parent list as a dataview and the child as a subview.  So far so good, all is functioning as you would expect.    Now I need to apply conditional formatting to cells and rows in both the parent and child lists.  I can create a very simple condition on a row or cell of the parent list such as "If ID Equals '2988' format the background color as green" but no conditional formatting appears for the row where ID = 2988.  Incidentally, if I change the condition to "not equals 2988" the background changes to green. The line in the code view of Designer appears as follows:  <xsl:if test="../../../Rows/Row/@ID = '2988'">background-color: #00FF00;</xsl:if> I've seen this question asked here and in blogs but never answered.  If anyone has a solution, I would love to know what it is. Thanks; Dave  UPDATE:  it doesn't seem to matter if you add the additional fields as a joined subview or not.  If I add 2 data views, both using the linked data source which is configured to JOIN the contents of the data sources the conditional formatt

Can't make parameterized query work in data flow task


I have an OLE DB source in a data flow task.  The connection is pointing to a SQL Server 2008 instance.  My SQL works fine when I click the preview button.  Now I need to make it parameterized by adding a question mark in my where clause.  After doing so & clicking the Parameters button, I get the error described in this post .  When I try to do what's described therein to correct the problem (click the "build query" button), I get the error "The PIVOT SQL construct or statement is not supported."

I can't make this query an expression; it's simply too complex to maintain that way (besides, just pasting it into an expression builder window and trying to evaluate as is doesn't work - can't evaluate).

So the question is, how do I parameterize a query?  And why does SQL here work so radically differently from SQL in an execute SQL task?

Custom Task form of a SharePoint Designer workflow is not displaying correctly


We have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer. We are using one action “Collect Data from a User”. As you know, this action sends an email to a user with a link to a task form where user is supposed to accept or reject a request. We are encountering following issues with this form:

  1. Form is not a workflow form, it is a task item of the task list that the “Collect Data from a User” action of the workflow creates.
  2. Form opens as an item of the workflow task list in View mode (DispForm.ASPX) instead of Edit mode (EditForm. ASPX)
  3. When user clicks on “Edit Item” button, it displays all the fields of the task as editable – we want only the Approve/Reject option buttons and the comments TextBox (that we created during the workflow design) to be displayed as editable

Can someone please explain what is going on and how can we resolve the above issues?

create task item with sharepoint designer workflow



I have an InfoPath form and a SharePoint forms library with a workflow. When I submit an InfoPath form to the forms library a workflow is triggered. Within this workflow I want to create an item in the task list. This is possible with the action in sharepoint designer wf "assign a to do item". But within this action the name of the task item is hardcoded.

Now I want to change the name of the task item. The name should be one field of my InfoPath form. I also want to set the due date of the task item.


Any ideas?
