Workflow prescript errors finding the document owner and using compareTo

13 Views

Hi All,

I have a requirement for approval prescript to add an approver only if the Project Estimated Value is over an approval limit contained in an extension field on the document owner’s user account.

I have created a decimal extension field on the user account called approvallimit and I have created a group extension field on the Project header called Level1AppGrp.

I have created the below prescript and I am having two problems with it:

Problem

  1. 1) I am getting a parse error on the compareTo line of the code. Do I need to convert one of these numbers so that I am comparing the same type of data?
  2. doc.getOwnerObjRef() is not picking up the owner of the document, should I be using different code to find the owner user account and get my extension field from it?

Many thanks

Dan
