May I know if it is possible to identify a item status whether is it newly created in a particular list itself or moved from other list due to a work flow?

You'd need to create a tracking column (like WF Item) to handle that with a default value of No. The default value of No will be entered for each item created through the UI. If the workflow adds an item to a list, you'd set the status column to Yes.

Got your point. Alternative method to identify the items are still welcome. – Wilson Tan Sep 12 '11 at 1:18
