How to create WSP or Package for workflow in Share Point 2007?



I am working on SharePoint 2007. I have created 2 List called "Config List" (this is a list) and "Vacation Form" (this is form library & form designed in infopath). I have also created a workflow on form library "Vacation Form" in Share Point Designer 2007.

With the use of this workflow I am creating some task and updating "Vacation Form".

Now I want to deploy these three thing (Config List, Vacation Form & workflow) on other server.

How do I create a package or WSP file to install these things on different server.

Share Point Designer 2007 Workflow (Sequential) - multi-collect data from user

I am currently building a multi-step workflow using ShrePoint designer for MOSS2007. I am getting a bit confused as to if I have an error or if I am doing something incorrect. Here is what I have going. My workflow consists of something similar to the following New document comes in, a collect data from user routine is ran and assigned to a reviewer. My understanding when I create a collect data from user WorkFlow step is any data I request is saved in the "Tasks" list. Therefore I need to grab the workflow task ID in order to later lookup what the reviewer submitted... I understand this...   However, I have one more collect data from user workflow step and I have one more item to collect. Even though this is a brand new collect data from user workflow step - does the collected data still go into the "Tasks" list? In other words, if I have two steps in a workflow and both of these steps are "collect data from user", does the data from both steps go into the same "Tasks" list?  I could see how this might be possible as long as the Task list columns contain all the items for all the different "collect" data from user steps.  I don't see two different Tasks lists representing or named "Reviewer" or "Final" or anything, so I assume the items are all in "Tasks"   However..

I need a suggestion to bind the data in share point 2010 page.Suggest some right control to do this.

In my visual web part i need a control to display rows with grouping option. In my web part i am going to display all my document library and  announcement so that i need groping option. I need to do grouping option in the view.so what is the best control u suggest me to bind my data? 

In a workflow, how do I pass the original library url to the task form?

Creating a workflow, where I need to display the originating library url (along with document name) in the task form.  I know that the SPWorkflowActivationProperities has the value (its itemurl), but how do I then make that available so that the task can see it? I tried to put it in the extended properties on the task invoking "createDocumentApproval_TaskProperties.ExtendedProperties["MyOriginalUrl"] = workflowProperties.ItemUrl;" but I dont see it when I open the Task form by using a Request.Params. Any help will be greatly appreciated thxRocky Sanders

Form that is part of workflow wont open in form library


I am having an issue with my form. I have created a sharepoint sequential workflow using visual studio and as a task the user has to fill out an infopath form. When the form is submitted as part of the workflow is then saved to a form library. My issue is when I try to open the form in the form library I get the message "The form has been closed". 

I have check the Central Admin/Manage Form Templates and my form is here, status="Ready" and workflow enabled. But my form doesnt exist in the sitecollection/FormTemplate library. So I believe that when I try to open the form in the browser that template cant be found. Why I say that is when I open the form with the info path client, I get the message "The form was created with a new version of the form template. InfoPath cannot find the new version. Do you want to open with an older one" 
If a infopath form is part of a workflow and it be saved in a form library and then open, if so how?
Am I publishing the form incorrectly - I publish to network location. Then install my feature.
Do I need to associated the form template with the form library or should the feature installation take care of this?


- FormTemplate Library doesnt appear in site settings, I

Share point database and site collection size, and restrictions and workflow


Sharepoint site collections


More Detail



We had a 3rd party into to develop the share-point service, This is really a very difficult situation not the solution but the documents that are stored and the way it was retrieved.


The real thing is that we receive an item it is booked into SAP and then we send an automated xml to set up a local site this site will then have details from the SAP system fed by ABAP. After the site is created, and then we add documents files and .jpg. These documents must show a detailed audit trail so that if challenged in a court of law can show who had access and who updated documents. 


SO the problem is 


1 Site Collection that is 170gig and the design means that we have 1600 sites and these contain images that are stored in the single site collection. How do we remove the full documents and images and replace with links rather than the doc, img. 


2. We have around 8 business units the problem is that they can share information acros

Share Point 2010 Workflow throws error Workflow Failed to run when using a Pause Untill condition


I need to define a workflow where every night it checks the end date and if it is in past it should delete that list item. To achieve this I defined two workflows on the list which satrt when item created or modified. One workflow just checks the date and if past deletes the item. Another workflow I have defined as timer workflow which pauses untill 1am next day and then updates a hidden filed in the list item which triggers another instance of the timer workflow as well as deletion workflow.

Everything works fine if I remove the pause Until action, but if I use Pause Until or Pause For Duration the workflow does not resume and throws error workflow failed to run.

I googled and found this issue with 2007 and some hotfixes but could not find any solution for 2010 Anyone experienced the same issue?
