Sahrepoint 2007 Custom Worfklow for importing 100 numbers of records - failing - Showing Starting as Status for many entries - forever RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a requirement to import excel data to sharepoint. We have few lists and document libraries , where we need to create folder and sub folder when an import button is clicked. This import process will take data from excel file and create the folders and sub folders in 2 custom list and 2 document libraries. in the 2 document libraries it is to create sub folders also.

    We are also breaking the inheritence of the folders and assigning 5 groups to be dynamcially added to the folder permission.

    We are also creating 2 groups dynamically through code.

    All these process we have implemented in a custom workflow developed and attached to a custom list.

    When the import option is given, items get added to the custom list and this triggers workflow.

    Our problem starts here. When we increase the number of items to be imported into the list, few of the workflow is showing the status as "Starting" and it never changes to any other state and continue forever like that.

    Can you please suggest any reason/ solution for this

    Thanks in advance
