    True (perhaps) but only as far as SPD workflows (and probably VS workflows) are concerned - which is probably what you were thinking of.

    The main difference is in the built-in workflows. WSS 3.0 provides only the three-stage workflow. MOSS 2007 provides that and several more workflows such as the "approval" workflows.


    Note: How we interpret the question and why we interpret it differently probably is connected with what we think "custom workflows" means. I can understand restricting a reply to SPD+VS workflows because of the word "custom".

    Both also have links to extensive book lists and to (free) on-line chapters

  • Hi Mike,

                       Thanks you for ur reply.

                       The diffarence you metioned is physical diffarence.

                     Actually i meant of developing a custom SPD workflow using visual studio. I am stuck in the sharepoint version like if any new functinalities or methods differ in these two? My doubt is in that level.
