comment Update List Item Workflow - Not Running
Probably. The reason I'm asking the larger question---and I understand confidentiality, the folks I work for are draconian about it---is to see if there's another way to do what you're trying to do. I suspect that your problem is with the multi-choice column. I've always had issues using a workflow to take string values and use them to make multi-choice selections. Like I said, choices aren't stored in the way they're displayed. They're delimited by semi-colons, pound signs, and numbers.

No, I read your post. Your description of the function of the workflow and the contents of the list were clear enough. What is the purpose of this process? What business need is this supposed to fulfill?

comment Update List Item Workflow - Not Running
I think I'd need a little more context before I could answer this. What is it you're actually trying to accomplish. Not the structure of the lists or the workflows, but what is all of this intended to do? Remember that with choice columns, there's more than just text. Each choice is formatted like #1;Choice1;#2;Choice2, etc.

comment How to have a list auto update once a week and then email the people in the list?
Seems like you could do something with Information Management policies on the list(s) in question that may actually obviate the need for your javascript and REST stuff. Let me play around on my sandbox, and I'll see if I can come up with a workable example.

Any reason you're doing this in a CEWP on page rather than running it in in the page head?

comment Vacation Request workflow will not trigger
Without more details, it'd be tough to answer this question. What is a "vacation request" in this context? A list item, calendar entry, etc? How is your workflow set to initiate? On item creation? Manually? Are you getting an error when the user tries to enter a second request or is it just not running? How do approvals work? Is it through content approval or is it something much simpler?

To be honest, neither do we. What version of Office are you all using?

Yikes. So, in order to prevent crashes, you have to repair the installation of office? Any idea what service or class might be corrupted or responsible for the crash? This is something that may impact my organization and, not to put too fine a point on things, but we'll have your problem but an order of magnitude greater.

comment Is there in sharepoint a Discussion board with State?
Just idle musings. You could create a "New Question" content type using Discussion as the parent and have that be the default "New Item" on the board. For New Question, State defaults to Open and is hidden (so your asker doesn't see the State field at all). Then, a workflow kicks off on item creation to switch it from New Question to the stock Discussion content type. State is now visible and workable. You could have a second workflow that runs on item creation that nags your answering users once a week to update the status of open questions.

comment Is there in sharepoint a Discussion board with State?
You can get more fancy than that with an additional content type and a workflow. Maybe a content type called New Question that's for your asking user that doesn't display the State field. A workflow to flip the content type to Working Question or something, which does reveal the state field. Then maybe a workflow that sends out an email to your answering users periodically to prompt them to flip the state field, when appropriate, to closed or whatever.

comment Is the sharepoint server the application server
Ah. Ok. You'd install it on what you're calling your application server. Fair warning: I'm on the development side of the house, not the admin side; but I believe that "database server" is actually SQL, not SharePoint, in terms of product.
