Absence Request Workflow


Hello fellow Sap'ers.

I have an issue in a client which is the following. Due to an error in customizing for a few days, the absence requests created in ESS did not initiate the workflow for the request. We were able to find out the problem and fix it, but the problem is that meanwhile all absence requests created in this interval of days are "stuck" and don't appear in the task list for the aprovers. I have checked and the requests are created (PTREQ* tables) are all ok, the request is created with the status SENT and only has the version 1 record.

So my question is, how can i replicate the natural process, creating the workflow process for these requests ? I have tried with FM SAP_WAPI_START_WORKFLOW but i think i'm missing something in the containers, has i get an error.

The task we are using is WS90200027 which is probably a copy of the standard task for the Absence requests.

Thanks for all the help in advance.
