sharepoint validation

is it possible [and if it is could someone provide an example of the code] to make a [drop down] field change from its current state to 'pending' [which is one of the drop down choices]  if any of the cells are subsequently changed. i.e If someone goes back into the item after the item has been completed I need it to be able to move back into a differnt view, but the person making the amendment might not change the field back to pending so I need it to change if any field is amended.

Hope that is clear.

Thanks

Hello,

you could create a workflow that changes the state back to pending when the item is edited. This can be done with SharePoint Designer.

You will need to establish the logic and create a few conditions in the workflow, though. So, for example, if the approver approves the item and sets the status to "approved", then the workflow should NOT change the status back to "pending".

The devil is in the detail. You need to plan and map out exactly what happens when certain fields change and then let the workflow act accordingly.

If you need help with that, please pipe up.

cheers, teylyn
