[Sharepoint 2007] How to loop few tasks/activities in Visual studio workflow designer ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi all,

I would like to create a workflow which have 3 tasks.

First the workflow create a task and assigned this task to a user. The user has to choose 4 dates in the year.

For each date chosen of the year two tasks will be created. The first task will ask the user to arrange a meeting.

When the first task has been completed a second task is assigned to the user asking for some feedback of the meeting.


How can i loop these 4 dates easily ?

SharePoint 2007 Sequential Workflow in Visual Studio



I've got a problem of creating Sharepoint 2007 Sequential Workflow via Visual Studio 2008.

I have a Visual Studio 2008 on my machine which is not the server machine (Window XP) and a server which has SharePoint Server. I had been assigned task to work on Sharepoint Workflow. So, I have decided to create a project on my Visual Studio 2008, Sharepoint 2007 Sequential Workflow. But, I got the problem down here which blocked me. 

"32-bit version of SharePoint Server is not installed. Please install a 32-bit version of SharePoint Server"

and following error in other system:

"Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies"

- I am also not allowed to install Visual Studio 2008 on the server.

- I could not install Sharepoint Service 3.0 or SharePoint Server on my machine.

I hope you some body could help me with this matter.

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

SharePoint Designer 2007 Workflow needs to initialize lookup field value and store it

This is for a governance tracking list. I have two tables: Roadmap and Roadmap Status In Roadmap, there are two fields of interest that are lookup fields to Roadmap Status:Title they are Status and OldStatus When an item is entered in Roadmap, I want to force the initial Status to "Submit" from Roadmap Status. I don't see any way in my workflow to to lookup that item in Roadmap Status and place the pointer (I'm assuming it is a GUID) into the field. The value is also stored in OldStatus to catch changes as I'm trying to force order of status in a few cases but not all. I'm doing it with a Lookup instead of Choice because the business tends to change the terminology they like and this way I don't change it in several places plus it allows them to change it in the list instead of someone changing the list field values. I've seen several places on the forum where people have a similar problem and Lambert Qin has given an answer but it never fits this scenario exactly. Do I have to go back to Choice columns? I only have Designer and would rather not have to learn another tool for a simple SharePoint implementation. Thanks for any help!

MOSS 2007 - SharePoint Designer Workflow failing when using group vs individual user

I am creating a simple workflow in SharePoint designer that will email a selected user when a list is modified.  I am applying the condition "if modified by" in Designer.  This condition works fine and the email is sent when I select a specific user myDomain\username.  It does not work when I attempt to associate a SharePoint group with the "if modified by" filter. In my example the list has only one SharePoint group associated with it, this is the only group with permissions for the list.  The group contains multiple users. The workflow is successful with the following scenario: if modified by myDomain\user1 or if modified by myDomain\user2 The workflow fails with the follwoing scenario: if modified by mySharePointGroupName  (which includes myDomain\user1 and myDomain\user2) This would be an ungodly if statement with a large membership SharePoint group.  This would also be a nightmare as people leave the organization and their account credentials are left in the large if statement in the workflow.  Looking for the modified condition when associated with a group seems like the logical way of doing this. I also tried "myDomain\domain users" which accounts for all user in my domain, this failed as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

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?
