Unable to create task using Custom task Process Action in Sharepoint Designer 2010 workflow

Problem : In Sharepoint Designer 2010, we are working on creating reusable workflow.
In workflow we are using "Start Custom task process" action. It has been observed that,all of the sudden it behaves weirdly. It creates task but without any number appending to taskform.for eg. when we create task it generally shows "Start Task(1) process on Current Item with these users" However now it does not provide any number with Task. It shows "Start Task process on Current Item with These users"
In task form , it does not allows to add task forms fields from existing fields nor allows to create outcomes.
Thus we are unable to create any new workflows or edit and enhance exisitng workflows in the site.This is showstoper for project. Client wants to use sharepoint designer exclusively to develop workflow.
When we tried to create workflow (Sharepoint designer) in a new site with new list it allows us to create custom tasks process. 
Resoultions approaches done so far.
1) Took backup of site on local box from Server and tried to create custom process task but not able to do it.
2) On Server removed all unwanted workflow status columns from the tasks list but still not able to create custom process task 
3) Took backup and t

SharePoint Designer: insert custom list not working anymore



Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.

It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).

Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they say.

I also tried the solutions listed here: http://blogs.msdn.com/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx
But they don't fix the problem.

So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow


In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.
