Workflow condition problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi

I have a scenario and not sure if this can be attained via workflow:

< I have a list, and 3 columns in this list needs to updateable by only a particular set of users. I want to design a workflow which will help me achieve this.

I tried the following condition:

If CurrentItem:Modified by <> {user1,user2,user3}

then update item in current item {FY = 'None'}

This condition fails when a user tries an updates the list, the "FY" column automatically get over-written by "None"

I need to retain the FY column value if its previous been updated by {user1,user2,user3} and not set it to none

Can some one please help me

Workflow 3.5 Activity property is null in condition and nowhere else

  
I have an activity that has properties that look something like this (they're set up as proper dependency properties, I just kept it simple here): public List<MyType> TypeList { get; set; }public Int32 Index { get; set; }public MyType SelectedType { get; set; } and an execution that just does this: SelectedType = TypeList[Index]; TypeList and Index are values that I set from other activities. I don't set SelectedType to anything in the activity properties, I just let it get set in the execution. Now I know for a fact that SelectedType is getting set properly, I can even point another activity to it and print out some values from it. So I'm quite positive that there's nothing wrong with that activity. However, I have an if activity with a condition that looks like this: ((MyActivity)GetActivityByName("activity1")).SelectedType != null and it evaluates to false (meaning it evaluated SelectedType as null). I'm pretty sure that that activity cast is correct (I do things like that all the time), and if it weren't wouldn't I get a null reference exception when trying to access SelectedType? So I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong here, but for some reason SelectedType is coming up null in that condition and no where else. It's almost as if the condition is being evaluated before the activity is being run, but the activity comes well before the condi

Problem with Merge Join and condition splt trasnformations in SSIS 2008

  
  Hey, While working SSIS in 2008 we have encountering some weird problems with Merge, Merge Join and Condition Spilt transformations, here are the details... Condition Split and Merge Join and Condition Split: Please check the below diagram(not really just tried) for the complete details. Just FYI data is in sorted order   condition Split -> 420000      | 18                                                          | 419982  Merge Join(left)  -- src1(6000)      |10  Condition Split      |9     |1   the merge join transformation is not returning the complete 18 rows to the next transformation that's why we are missing 8 rows. But if we adds a sort transformation (getting warning as data is already sorted) before merge then complete 18 rows were passing to the condition split. Also tried modifing the source query just to return 18 rows then also it was passing the 18 rows to next trasnformation except with full load.       Merge: We have two sorted data sources and first one has 40000 records and second source have 12000 records and after the Merge transformation we have Condition Split transfor

Sharepoint 2010 FullTextSqlQuery query problem with where condition

  
Hello, i´m developing a webpart under Sharepoint 2010, i need to launch some different query´s to filter data but i´m having problems. First of all, i launch this query and i get all the users; SELECT PreferredName, LastName, Department, OfficeNumber, JobTitle, WorkEmail, PictureUrl FROM Scope() WHERE ("scope" = 'Personas') ORDER BY "Rank" DESC with that results i fill different dropdownlist with each of the columns, then I can filter for each column. For example: I filter by PreferredName, Lastname or WorkEmail, with this query SELECT PreferredName, LastName, Department, OfficeNumber, JobTitle, WorkEmail, PictureUrl FROM Scope() WHERE ("scope" = 'Personas') AND (("LastName" Like '%MOSS%')) ORDER BY "Rank" DESC But when i try to use the columns Department, OfficeNumber and Jobtitle every query returns 0 rows. SELECT PreferredName, LastName, Department, OfficeNumber, JobTitle, WorkEmail, PictureUrl FROM Scope() WHERE ("scope" = 'Personas') AND (("Department" Like '%Dirección%')) ORDER BY "Rank" DESC The main thing is if i get all the data i see that these columns (officeNumber, Jobtitle, Department) are not empty. Some of them have values some of them don´t. All the columns have the property "Reduce storage recquirement for text propert

Workflow - Same Contract used in two service - Conversion problem

  
Hello, I'm trying at the moment to use WF to create a basic Workflow, and face a conversion problem. Here's the setup : Service 1 : Create objects based on a defined Data Contract Service 2 : Apply an operation on objects of type defined in service 1. Service 1 is imported as Service reference. I created a simple Workflow which imports both services. It first call Service one to get an object, and then send it to Service 2 to apply the operation. But when I try to do this I receive an error of type : 'WF.Service1.Entity' cannot be converted to 'WF.Service2.Entity'. The Contract used is only defined in the Service 1 and reused in Service 2, so it's the same object. The only difference is in the proxy client generated which creates both definitions, each one in it's specific namespace (Service1 and Service2). Do you see any solution to this situation ? Except creating an activity that copy every property from one object to another :-) P.S. : I uploaded the basic setup here : http://www.mediafire.com/?e6j9c2dv4rvcdoh

Problem with custom workflow action (SP2010, SPD2010)

  
We have created an assembly containing 3 custom actions to be used in SPD. Everything works correctly; however every Change and Publish cycle requires me to recreate the lines (steps) containing the custom actions. It is simple mechanical replacement but still is a pain and i would like to figure this out. I've spent considerable time on this already with no solution in sight. Tried clearing out proxy cache (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointworkflow/thread/34632798-6e45-4eb3-ad3d-2f941c706cda ) Also checked web.config for non-referenced assemblies.

Workflow that moves item from one library to another, with condition: 1 year old.

  

I have Sharepoint 2007, and i now want to make a workflow that moves one year old item from one library to another, so that the old documents do not show in search. I have made the workflow, but i cannot see how i can set the condition that IF the item is older that ONE YEAR, it will be moved to another library.

I want to do this so that I can keep my old news-item not showing in search results.

If someone have other suggestion (besides workflow) to keep old items out from search results, I would appreciate tips :)

Problem validating StringBuilder fields in SharePoint 2010 Custom Workflow Validators

  

One of our custom SharePoint Designer workflow activities, which have always worked fine in SharePoint 2007, fails to validate.

This appears to happen when a Workflow Activity that contains a StringBuilder field also contains a lookup variable.

<FieldBind Field="CustomCode" Text="this code" Id="1" DesignerType="StringBuilder" />

For example when we store the following in this StringBuilder field

"Today's date = [%Current Item:Transaction Date%]"

This field returns 'null' in the ActivityValidator. As a result we cannot validate its contents.

When

"Does not contain" condition on a choice field in a SPD Workflow does not apply/work

  

I am trying to check a multiple choice field on containing a specific value but it doesn't really work. I am not sure if that is because I have a

problem with the logic or if that is a SPD problem.

I created a Content Type "Test CT" (based on the "item" content type) and added two Site Columns of the type "choice", named "Test Column 1" and

"Test Column 2" to that content type. Both choice fields are configured to contain multiple values and can contain the identical values "Product

ABC" and "Product XYZ". Additionally I added Site Column of the type "Single Line of text", named "Result" to the content type. Then I added the

content type to the custom list "Test List".

Now I built the Reusable Sharepoint Designer Workflow "Test WF" that is based on this content type and that works like this:

======================

Set "Result" to String "Start"

If "Test Column 1" contains String "Product ABC"
Set "Result" to String "Test Column 1 contains ABC"

Else If "Test Column 1" does not contain String "Product ABC"
Set "Result" to String "Test Column 1 does not contain ABC"

======================

Then I
