Working with workflows and populating lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all, I am currently building a workflow, i created a list (let say list A), when the user fills out the list (form) and clicks OK button the workflow kick starts. the first action of workflow should be populating all the fields(whatever filled by user) in the List A to List B (here list B has same columns as list A but some additional columns). How to built this action in workflow. Any thoughts are highly appreciated. Quite a newbie to Sharepoint, eager to learn more about it.

    Suppose List A has name field, its being filled as XYZ, then workflow should be able to populate XYZ in same corresponding name field in List B. I hope I made it clear

    Trying to build workflow in sharepoint designer 2007 (Article would be great Help)

  • Hi,

    This can be accomplished using the Workflow Action "Copy List Item". You just need to specify "Current Item" as the source and the List B as the target.

    Hope this helps.
