When a list item is updated in parent site, I want to update subsite list item by workflow.
From the sharepoint designer 2007, when creating workflow, i can find the list in current site only.
Any idea how to do that?
Thank you.

    SP designer workflows are limited to a specific web. Options:
    1. Use Visual studio WF
    2. Try 3rd party options like Nintex
    3. Create a custom activity (using visual studio) to use in the SP designer
    4. Try to leverage the SP webservices. This will help

    If you are restricted to SP designer, try option 4.
