SharePoint Workflow with compare on person value

Matt Pinkston
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Okay so my one workflow has developed into 6 steps, boy once you get it you love it.

Couple questions I can't seem to figure:

1. if name = lastname, firstname
I have a person value in my list called approved which is set to lastname, firstname I need to check this to see who to send the email notification too. It does not seem to be working is there a trick?

This is the glue to my whole project, I hope this can be done.

2. Calculation with workflow
I have a value called amount in my list2, when the list2 element is approved the value is amount could be added to total amount in List 2.

I don't see where you can do matm in workflow.
