I have attempted to do this workflows and tried publishing a few but they cant seem to execute. I am not sure what the reason could be. I am trying to forward all values from one field in a list to another another field from another list? Should I use lookup field to perform this workflow?

The workflow which I have published the list to displays the following below. Is this correct when you publish a workflow on the list?

Alright, so you didn't provide much to go off (like whether this is a 2010 or 2013 WF and what you were trying to copy) but I've drafted up a 2013 WF that does what you want (you were on the right track)...

Not sure if this is what you were looking for but I hope it helps!

  • Thank you for you comments. I am using WF 2010 with SharePoint Designer 2013. I think the workflow is not the problem, cause I tried a basic test workflow and it did not work. I read that you cannot use the System user account to do workflows in SharePoint. is this true?
