I have a problem when trying to copy a value of a managed metadata column from one list to another by a Sharepoint Designer (SPD) Workflow
I have two lists. "Locations" and "Employees". "Locations" has a Content Type integrated that has a Site Column of the type managed metadata named "Geographic Location". This Managed Metadata column describes the geographic location from continent down to
the city name. I also have a Content Type for the "Employee" list. This one contains a lookup column "Location Abbreviation" on the title column of the "Locations" list and the same managed metadata column "Geographic Location". Now my Workflow is created
to work with the Content Type "Employee" and goes like this:
Set current item:Geographic Location to Locations:Geographic Location (where Current Item:Location Abbreviation equals Locations:Location Abbreviation (Lookup Value (As Text)))
But the workflow always reports "Error occured". The message is:
"The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information."
But is is very unlikely that this message is useful as both columns use the same Site Column. Do you have any Ideas?
