Event not defined in Workflow


I receive the following error message while performing a syntax check in my Workflow:

"Event 'CALLSUBWF' is not defined for object type 'BUS1001'.

I understand that I need to create the event "CALLSUBWF" for object type "BUS1001" which is defined in the Workflow Container.

Since I'm a beginner with Workflow, can someone explain me how can I create the event?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

    I Think you might have created a ZBOR for your WF.

    Please delegate this to BUS1001in SWO1 initial screen under settings->delegate.

    Two things to be considered before creating an event.

    1. If its a custom application/Transaction from whcih you are triggering the workflow, then copy the BUS1001 to ZBUS1001

    and create an event.

    2. If the triggering point is standard transaction or standard action then make ZBUS1001 as subtype of BUS1001 and delegate

    and then create an event in ZBUS1001.

    Creating an Event:

    1. Goto SWO1 tcode and open the ZBUS1001 in change mode

    2. Select the Event Tree and click on create icon.

    3. Give the necessary name and create event parameters if necessary by clicking on parameters button.

    Hope this would help to solve your issue.
