So I'm checking if CurrentItem:field is empty or not, and so I put a log inside to figure out where the error was, heres what I got:

4/29/2013 1:53 PM Comment System Account 0;#
4/29/2013 1:53 PM Error System Account Coercion Failed: Unable to transform the input lookup data into the requested type.

here's my logic:

If CurrentItem:field is empty
 Log CurrentItem:POC
 Set Variable:variable_field to CurrentItem:field
 Log variable_field

I thought that designer could figure out that 0:# meant that a field was empty. Any suggestions or tips here?

  1. Create new workflow variable
  2. Set CurrentItem:field value to newly created variable
  3. Check newly created variable is empty
  4. your next logic

This will work,


Can't you just add and or statement to your check, where you check for "not equals 0;#" too.
