SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In MOSS 2007, I have an OTB Approval workflow on one of the list which is manually triggred for each item. Now there is a situation where the aprroval is assigned for one of the item to a user who has left the organisation, I as an admin should be approving on his behalf.

I can go upto Approve this request page but on clicking Approve I get the error message This Task Update was not accepted.

I tried to reassign my self this task by selecting reassign other user but again the same error message is displayed. Now on the list the status for the item is In Progress which should have been Completed. Kindly suggest what can be done to change the status.

Note : I am having Admin rights for this site
