How to update a header field through workflow

By | November 8, 2019

Sometimes we may come under a situation where we need to update a field in the same time when the workflow gets triggered.

To update field on running workflow firstly we need to select a workflow rule. i.e at what action you need to update the field (For eg: on Validation, rejection, notification, cancellation etc).

The action we need to add for this is AWRKUPDOBJ. This action has parameters where you can define the name of the object and the field from its header table.(The table linked to object). We can also define when this action is need to be triggered in ‘triggering’ field and also set a condition for its execution in ‘execution condition’ field.

Kindly refer the below fig to know how the parameters should be added.

Hence, make sure the action checkbox is checked for this workflow rule. The field will get updated once this workflow get triggered.
