Workflow or Lookup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a column that shows a project number, on the end of the project number i have the Doc ID number. This column is a calculated column.

    Example: xxx-xxxx-xxxx-01

    The Doc ID number does not keep it`s value in the concat formula so i use a workflow to add the Doc ID  number to the Project Number.

    Now my problem is to show this number in a document footer. Being a calculated column, this does not show in the MS Word Quick Parts. So i used the workflow i created earlier to also update a column called Footer to show the Project No. Great Idea, i thought? Only problem is, the column shows all of the number apart from the Doc ID.

    Is there a way i can show the complete number including the Doc ID in a column that will also show in MS Word Quick Part?

  • This has now been resolved by adding in another step to the workflow.
