I set up a workflow that let's a user create and populate a word document using an input form from a custom list. I followed Todd's blog post to achieve this:

After the form in the custom list "documents" is submited and the word document is generated in "certificate" document library, I want to create a second workflow step that will update the record in custom list "documents" to display a hyperlink to the word document.

To do this, I'm using "Update item in _" to place a hyperlink within my "LINKTOWORDDOC" field but I can't get the correct url to display.

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.

The create action will output a variable that contains the item ID value. You can use that ID to look up URL information from the library, build a dynamic string and update the list with that URL.
