Query about the order 'Start another Workflow' uses

May 22, 2008 at 3:57 PM

I'm very impressed with these extra activities, and especailly would like to use the 'Start another Workflow' one to invoke a second workflow under certain conditions.  I am having a difficulty with this feature though, namely that regardless of how far through the first Workflow I'm initiating this step, it seems to invoke first regardless. 

Basically I can have a 4 step workflow, and the 'Start another Workflow' activity can be the last action in the fourth step, but when I look at the Version and Workflow histories, then it appears to have fired off first.  I can confirm the order by putting logs and checking it in/out and the second Workflow always appears to have the earliest versioning

Do others have experience of this, or is this a unique to us? 

Any thoughts or ideas people have would be appreciated.
