I am trying to create a workflow which checks the value in a task list using the Workflow Item Id and the Content Type. So far it appears SPD 2007 only allows lookups on a single value. So how do i create an "and" search on a Task List where multiple tasks have been assigned by the same list?

Example: Workflow Item ID = 107 AND Content Type = "Contract Approval"

No Code solutions preferred please.

From the Designer , select the Condition dropdown ( Item - > Content TYpe =xxx)

then do the same again  Condition Dropdown ( Current  Item - >  antoher condition yyyy)

designer will automatically format that as a (AND Condition )


best of luck.

Ok, I guess it should have been obvious. It appears that SP will scroll through the list until all the matches are found but I am uncertain how to define the lookup. I can't just pick a list and column in that list and ask if it matches my search value, say "107". I also have to define additional criteria within the lookup.

The Source and Field are obviously the name of the list to search and the column in that list, but under "Find the List Item"  I am uncertain which field and matching value I should enter. Do I look up the Workflow ID or some other matching reference?

Sorry if these questions seem elementary but defining lookups in SPD2007 can be confusing at times.

before that you should select the List (that is the first step )
...

next you will need to pick the first field (let us say ID ( and match ID field to the value (107))

Is this what you mean?

I understand Source and Field under "Lookup Details". My confusion was about Field and Value under "Find the List Item"
