Hello,

from the screenshot above it looks as if the site you are editing is not a SharePoint site, but a web site on your D drive.

Microsoft has this article about Creating a Workflow with SharePoint Designer 2007: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-designer-help/create-a-workflow-HA010100591.aspx

You need to edit an actual SharePoint site to create a workflow.

cheers, teylyn

You may not have sufficient permissions to create workflows on that site. Have you checked with your site administrators?

I agree with Teylyn. It looks as though you are editing a local file rather than a SharePoint site.

Click File, then Open Site, and browse to your SharePoint site. A new Designer window will open. Then look for Workflow in the menu.
