comment Workflow cannot find list item when column has blank string
Thanks Juan. Unfortunately, it didn't end up matching the value. I re-tried the lookup with **** directly, as well as setting a string variable to **** and matching on that. I also tried matching that variable as String and as Plain Text. All came back having found no matches. Thanks for the suggestion though.

comment Workflow cannot find list item when column has blank string
Just to update you, I've tried a few more alternatives, to no avail. I tried adding an Initiation Form parameter, single line of text, and leaving it blank, hoping for a 1-to-1 comparison. Didn't work. I've also tried setting a string variable to "0x00" and "\0" to see if I'd strike gold, but nothin. At this point I'm going to plan B...I'm going to make a separate looping workflow to go and pre-set those missing values, as I can't seem to query for them. It doesn't solve the real question here, but will get me from A to B. I'm still open to the "real" answer, on querying for blank string

Rob - I tried putting "is empty" directly in the "Value" box, as well as assigning a string variable to "is empty" and comparing there. No dice. Thanks for the idea though.

comment Workflow cannot find list item when column has blank string
Thanks Rob. If my workflow were operating ON the item in question, then what you say would work. I could compare the "CurrentItem:ProcessedState is empty". However, my workflow is trying to go find the item from another list...so you have to do "Lookup for List Item" and pass the value to compare to, and that's what's not working. I will edit my post to show the form I'm trying to get to work and it may help clarify.

comment Why does v4.master suddenly strip out URLs?
One further comment on the "//" item. I could probably just do "https" at all times and be fine, to be sure. This issue hasn't been that the reference is there and not resolving. The issue has been SharePoint actually changing/chopping the domain of the reference before it gets to the client...regardless of http/https. That's the root I'm trying to track down here.

comment Why does v4.master suddenly strip out URLs?
One note - a coworker of mine reminded me that I should be doing a "Check Out" - change file - "Check In" as I update this, so I will try to do that going forward. Would that make a difference in this issue? Not sure. If it was using the copy I last checked in, it should still be working, so I'm thinking this is a separate issue. But point taken that I should be doing it "properly" when changing.

comment Why does v4.master suddenly strip out URLs?
Thanks Aveenav. The reason I'm using "//" is that this SharePoint site is accessible internally and externally, so it may sometimes be accessed via https and other times via http, and I wanted to flex between them if I could. My understanding is that "//" would flex with whatever is currently used for http/https. I agree that a local copy may be a way to go. That is my "Plan B" if I don't get find why this is happening. In that case, though, if I go to the trouble of a local copy and reference, I don't see a reason/benefit to still call the CDN...I'd just stay local probably.

comment Associated workflow links to wrong destination workflow
Further information: To debug, I also drilled into "SharePoint Designer" > "All Files" > "Workflows" > Workflow A & B "xoml.wfconfig.xml" files > And the "Association ListID & TaskListID" are both pointed to the correct GUID values for the list and tasks they should be doing. This was another place I had read could be off, but it's looking right there as well.
