    Hi Cindy,

    I am not 100% sure I understand your question, are you just trying to put values into a WF container?

    If so, there are a few methods by which the container is populated/changed:

    - Binding from event. Usually this only involves the triggering object & user and any parambeters (event container elements) explicitly defined for that event.

    - By attributes and a step type 'container operation'. e.g. creating a virtual attribute 'Value' and assigning &INVOICE.VALUE& to the WF element &DOCVALUE&

    - By binding from methods/WF steps back to your WF. e.g. &LASTUSER& <- &_WORKITEM.EXECUTEDBYUSER& or whatever. Good practice is to stick to attributes if you are not actuially performing any action, since creating a WF step is significantly more overhead than a container operation.

    Hope that helps.
