Workflow Status Stopped: Error checking out a list item RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was supporting an Infopath form that has a SPD workflow.
    The workflow can be modified from sharepoint designer.

    In the workflow step, it was trying to check-out the form (Current Item)
    before updating a field in the same form.

    When the form was changed during the process, the workflow just stopped
    and when I looked at the workflow history an error has occurred.

    The description in the workflow history is "Error checking out a list item"

  • Hi GVJeffrev,

    Please kindly check followings.

      • Make sure you have edit permission to check out the document.
      • Check if the document has already been checked out before the checkout workflow action run.
      • Add a delay action (like pause until duration) before the update item action and below the checkout item action.
      • If above cannot help on your issue, please check the ULS log to find more error details.

    In the workflow step, it was trying to update the fields in the same form.
    The process that it was doing were:

    1. Log <content here> to the workflow history list
    2. then Check out item in <same form>
    3. then Update item in <same form>
    4. then Check in item in <same form> with comments: <content here>
    5. then Log <content here> to the workflow history list

    In the sharepoint site workflow history, the error occurred during the Updating of the Item.
