How do I create an SPD workflow for all existing documents in doc lib?

Hi All, Could someone help me? I am newbie to sharepoint and workflow. I want to write a work flow library to send email to user bi annually. I have tried and not successful. My workflow doesn't applied to existing documents and it doesn't send mail to existing document owner and it stopped sending mail after one or two times. I am using sharepoint designer 2007. Here are work flow steps 1)      Workflow need to start automatically when attach to DL 2)      If there are some documents already in DL, this WF needs to be applied to all existing documents. 3)      When workflow starts, it will send email to document owner to review their existing documents or new document loaded 4)      Send reminder after one week if document owner doesn't review their document 5)      If user doesn't review the document (check out, check in) after 2 week, it will automatically check out and check in with document owner account 6)      After 6 months from that time, workflow will send email again to document owner to review 7)      Step 3 to 6 will loop.   Any suggestion? I am looking forward any help.   Thanks.Best Regards

Executing an existing workflow from C#

Thanks a lot!

Adding an existing task to a SharePoint Workflow

I have a very unique issue that I cannot find any answers to. I am desigining a workflow to assign and monitor multiple task lists based on a folder content type. Since you cannot instantiate a workflow from a folder content type, I have another process that programatically creates a Task associated with the document library folder. I want to have a workflow kick off upon creation of the task. However, there is no way within Workflow to correlate task realated activities with a task that already exists. The only way that I've been able to get this to work is to actually create a task within the workflow which will not work for me.

Is there any way to do this in workflow, or will I simply have to create a bunch of code activites to accomplish what I need. If that is the case then there is no point in even using workflow...


Cannot use an existing contract to design a xaml workflow


I am trying to use a contract first approach in designing Workflows but am facing problems. 

For Eg. If I have a Service Contract

[ServiceContract (Namespace="http://abc.com")]


    public interface IRegistry



        [FaultContract(typeof (CustomFault))]

        List<string> Update1(string projectToAdd);



        List<string> Update2(string projectToAdd);


I set the ServiceContract name as {http://abc.com/}IRegistry for the receive activity. But I was not able to make it hookup to the interface where I have a service attribute attached. 

How can I make sure that I implement the same interface when building a workflow in the designer. I was able to implement the same in a coded workflow though. Or even if I use a WorkFlowServiceHost I am able to attach service behaviors but am unable to do so without a WorkFlowServiceHost.

Bottom line is that is there any way we can use a Contract first approach for a XAML workflow and not a cod

URL Routing and Existing HttpHandler problems


Hello everyone,

I have a problem:

I am currently using 2 features: 

1. HttpHandler

Registering the path="res.aspx" verb="*"

2. URL Routing:

Registering with this pattern: "Company/Edit/{*companyId}","~/CompanyEdit.aspx"

In my CompanyEdit.aspx page, I used httphandler res.aspx to generate some images at client.

  • res.aspx?img=1
  • res.aspx?img=3

Now the problem is here, the page is load success with companyId = "12345", but when the images was loaded at client, it loaded the CompanyEdit.aspx again and show error with wrong id.  

I have debug and find the problem that because when image's urls were generated to client with url=res.aspx?img=1, url=res.aspx?img=3, the asp.net will understand that they are Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=1, Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=3 when it maps with URL Routing pattern.

=> So the CompanyEdit.aspx was load again with wrong id (id now is "res.aspx"). 

So, do you have any ideas to solve this problem, or other design.

Thanks, and best regard

Foundations: Workflow Services for Local Communication


This month's column describes how to use WCF for communication between a workflow and a host application in Windows Workflow Foundation 3. This knowledge should help developers with their efforts using WF3 and prepare them for WF4, where WCF is the only abstraction over queues (referred to as "bookmarks" in WF4) that ships with the framework.

Foundations: Windows Workflow Design Patterns


Design patterns provide a common, repeatable approach to solving software development tasks, and many different patterns can describe how to accomplish a certain goal in code. When developers begin working with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), they often ask about how to accomplish common tasks with the technology. This month's column discusses several design patterns used in WF.
