SharePoint Designer Error - Unexpected error on server associating the workflow

I am creating a multistep workflow with multiple Approval steps.  When I get to step 7 or the 7th Approval step and try to publish it, it states that "Errors were found when compiling the workflow.  The workflow files were saved but cannot be run."  With "Unexpected error on server associating the workflow" in the advanced section.  This same error occurs at other stages of the approvals as well.  If I put another process/action in the step, the workflow runs without any problem.  Thanks for the help!

Sharepoint Server 2007. Sharepoint Designer workflow not starting for one user only.


We have created a custom workflow in SPD that is attached to a document library within a MOSS 2007 teamsite.

The workflow is set to trigger when a new item is created in the document library.

Previously, the workflow has worked fine for all users but recently has stopped working for one user only.

For the problem user, what we are seeing is that when a new item is created in the document library, the attached workflow never starts.  There is no error, the workflow just does not get triggered.  However, if the problem user goes to an item in the document library and clicks on the workflow she can manually start it and it works fine with no error.

This user has the same permissions on the site as others who do not have any problem.

In the course of investigating this problem, we have temporarily increased the problem users permissions on the document library to full control (was contribute before) but this has had no effect on the problem.  Authentication is being done via Active Directory.  We have tried removing the user from the site and re-instating her but again this has no impact.

Does anyone have any idea how we could fix this problem or further debug it?

SharePoint Workflow : Failed to Start when a document is added to library from server-side object mo


When I add a document using my server-side object model code, I get an exception "The type or namespace name 'Office' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft'" in the server logs and in the library I can see the Workflow status as "Failed to Start".





Interestingly, when I add a document to the same library from sharepoint site portal, it works just fine, the workflow kicks off with the state : in-progress.

Also, I modified the task form for the Approval workflow template from SharePoint Designer using infopath.(Not sure if that be a problem as adding from portal works fine.)

What am I missing out here??

SharePoint Designer Workflow Server Error


Hello.  Has anyone seen this problem before?


I'm developing workflows in SharePoint Designer 2007.  I have full permissions on the site and in SPD.  One day for no apparent reason, I can't save my workflow and start getting "Server Error: Access Denied" messages.  Also, site contributors cannot manually start the workflows, they get "Access Denied" on the workflow library.  This was all working fine the day before.  Here are more details:

Changing the Deployment server of a sharepoint sequential workflow


Apologies if i have posted this in the wrong forum. I have a couple of sequential workflows that i have created and deployed to our test sharepoint site and am now ready to put them onto our live server which is on a completely different machine.

How do you change the deploy location of the workflow so that when its deployed its sent to the new server rather than the one set when first creating the workflow.
