SPD Workflow can't copy list item

  Asked By: Andrew    Date: Aug 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2787

I have an InfoPath form that submits to a library that is open to all
users. There is a field in the form that specifies another user that
will be responsible for approving the form from another library. I
have an SPD workflow set up to copy the newly submitted IP form to the
other library.

The workflow works when I logon with an account that has contribute
privs to the second library, but when I use an account that doesn't,
the workflow fails. The error messages tell me that the system account
could not find the library I'm trying to copy to. I suspect that this
is due to the fact that the context I'm logged in with in the second
instance can't even see the library I'm trying to copy to.

Anyone have a suggestion on how I can get around this?

This fails  because the workflow  is executing under the user  context of
the account  which creates the original file (which doesn't have
permissions to the 2nd library). You'll need to do this via an event
handler instead.
