    All I get this error when i start a workflow in MOSS 2007 library for a document.

    The workflow started is approval or collect feedback.

  • Hi All

    Found the reason for this issue.

    The list(Tasks) which was linked to the workflow was deleted.

    Hence the workflow could not start and in the ULS logs we can see the logs "The list is not found".

    Creating a new list with the same name doesn't resolve the issue, since the workflow is linked to the list based on the GUID of the list.

    We resolved this issue after restoring the list from the site recycle bin.
