I have created an association column as part of a reusable workflow in SharePoint designer. I am now trying to have this column equal the field of another column in Document Library.

I have tried setting the default to calculated field and then using this script:


However SharePoint is not recognizing this.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or how I can make this possible?

"However SharePoint is not recognizing this."

What does that mean, exactly?

Are the two fields in the same list? If so then you shouldn't have them in a default value (which is only used when the item is created) and instead have them in a calculated column.

I essentially need an association column from a sharepoint resuable workflow to equal the same value that appears in a sharepoint list. – Patrick_J May 10 '12 at 20:20
