WorkFlow Issue

  Asked By: Pallavi    Date: Mar 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 625

Currently I'm working on simple out of Box approval Workflow.

I have enabled Versioning settings to Only users who can
approve items (and the author of the item).
While my workflow setting says WF to Start when item is added
or edited.

Now when ever I add document and approve it, ideally the
WF status should be approved and WF should be terminated until item is edited.
But its status: pending infinitely.

For Solution I did (as suggested):
1. Microsoft provided Hotfix (KB955586) with SP1 which I executed
but the problem continues.
2. Further Installed SP2 but no solution.

Has anyone resolved this issue if so, what bifurcated this

Ensure that you are not altering a list item  after the Approval Status is set to
Approved. This will turn you back to Pending if you make changes to a list item.

adding to Kristopher comments, check the version history of the document.
