Workflow 'Delete Item' not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello,

I'm trying to create a workflow in SharePoint Designer that is triggered on file creation in a document library that does some validation on the file name and would delete the file if it doesn't pass validation. We're using SharePoint Foundation.

I've tried deleting items without any of the other logic of the workflow in place (simply delete every file that is uploaded) but I've been getting the message "Error Occurred - The workflow could not delete the list item. Make sure the list exists and the user has permissions to delete items in the list" every time and had no success so far.

The SharePoint System Account and my own user have full control of the library (as well as site and site collection), and I have tried running the workflow with an impersonation step as well as just the normal setup. I can copy the current item to another library but again no luck deleting it. I've also tried deleting an already existing file in the same library when another file is uploaded in case it was file lock type thing, but that doesn't work either.

I'm wondering if this is a permissions issue somewhere in Central Admin, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

Delete not working on List.aspx - out of box

  

Hello,


I'am trying to use Dynamic data web site on my project. I have Visual Studio 2010 enf Framework 4.0. I create the default project with the wizard. I add my own Entity Data Model.

When I try to use the "delete" autogenerated button on List.aspx, on the table ServerSetting (see image below), I receive a null exception.  I have no custom code involved in this operation and cannot seem to determine what is Null.

Any help would be appreciated!



Thanks,

Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item

  
Hi,

 

I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.  I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.  I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.  I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).  I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.  When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.  The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.

 

I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.

 

I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.  It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.

 

I have checked my security and I have fu

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter

  

We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.

 

For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).

 

In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:

Assigning users when creating a list item in a workflow

  

I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.  When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.  When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.  How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?  Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?

Updating a List item field value in a SPD Workflow is setting Date fields to null

  
Hello everybody,I faced a very weird behavior while creating a workflow in SPD against a Document Library.Here is the case:1- Create a document library in sharepoint site.2- Add a custom column of type DATE.3- Upload any document to the library4- Edit the item metadata and set the custom date field to any date you want.5- Now using sharepoint designer, create a very simple Workflow with only one action that updates the current item "Title" field to any value. (Note: In my case I set the workflow to start manually and not automatically)6- Save the workflow and then start it on the uploaded item.7- Now check the value of the date column after the workflow is finished.8- You will see that the Date field is Empty... (very weird)Notes:   1-This behavior will not appear on a standard list. it is only appearing in a Document library.  2- I am using WSS 3.0 SP2 + MOSS 2007 SP2. Also SharePoint designer 2007 SP2Did anyone face this situation and does it have a fix, or am I doing something wrong here... Please help.Regards,Maheed

Using Workflow to create an InfoPath item in a Forms Library

  
Hi Experts: Here is my situation: I have a MOSS 2007 server with list A (regular sharepoint list) and List B (InfoPath form library with a published form) This is what I am trying to accomplish using SharePoint Designer: List A is just a basic list User changes a column in list A to a specific value A new form needs to be added to the forms library B SharePoint designer Workflow will not create a valid xml file in the List B forms library. It just creates an invalid file based on the .xsn file template. Does anyone have any experience creating a valid xml form in a forms library using SharePoint Designer workflow? I can't migrate to 2010 so that is not an option. Thanks for all your advise.

Access Denied/The workflow could not copy the item workflow error after Sharepoint 2010 upgrade

  
We have a sharepoint designer workflow that copies a document from one library to another on the same site.  Before the upgrade to 2007 it worked fine, but now with 2010 it gives an error and cancels the workflow when it gets to the copy list item step.   The error on the workflow page: The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  Access Denied   Specifically it is the "copy list item current item to documentlibrary" sharepoint designer workflow action.   I have given the system account full permissions to the library and double checked that all columns are the same in both libraries.

Delay Activity is not working with SharePoint state machine workflow

  
Hello,   I have a problem with Delay Activity in Sharepoint state machine workflow. This issue is kind of common to many people but so far I haven't come accross any working solution. In one of the workflow states, I want to add a delay activity to send email notification if no action is taken after certain time. Below is what I have done:   In the targeted state: 1) add one eventDriven activity to handle the normal process (approve the item) 2) add another eventDriven activity to send the reminder email. In this eventDriven activity, I first add a delayActivity, set it to 2 minutes for test purpose. Then I add a Sharepoint SentEmail activity.   With my test, the Dealy Activity is never invoked after timeout period. What should I do to make the delay activity work in the SharePoint state machine workflow? Is there any work around if the delay activity is simply not working there?   Any suggestions are appreciated.
