    this happens when your Workflow is running a particular task repeatedly in small duration. You can delete the Lock entries from SM12 give user Id as WF-BATCH. This happens due to infinite loop in a workfliow.

      Hi Arghadip kat,

      I checked it in SM12 But there are no lock entries there... actually i retrigered the workflow and approved it .. is it because of that... the locked entry got deleted..

      this issue often happens .. is there any way to resolve this completely...

      Thankx in advance..
