Sorry for asking a non programming question, but I just can't figure out how to use the Workflow Designer in SPD2010.

I want to just write the simple statement in the workflow designer:

if field equals 'A' OR field equals 'B'

Problem is that I can't figure out how to get the OR (or AND) included.

Do I have to use VS to achive this??? What have I missed?

I've not worked with SPD 2010, but if it's anything like SPD 2007, the Conditions of the workflow step should allow you to do an OR, but you have to add two separate Conditions to do it.

  1. Click Conditions dropdown and choose "Compare [list] field"
  2. Click field and value to set those, then
  3. Click Conditions dropdown again and choose "Compare [list] field"
  4. Click and to change it to or, then
  5. Click field and value again to set those to your second choice

Wow, so intuitive – David Clarke Oct 14 '15 at 21:58

After you've added the first condition in the workflow step, highlight the condition then go to the Condition button on the ribbon and insert another "If..." condition. It will put it on the second line of the IF statement and allow you to change the AND to an OR.
