I am using a Sharepoint Designer workflow to copy a list item from one list with the regex field to another identical list on the same site.  The regex field value from the source list doesn't get copied.  I am using the CopyItemExtended spda (http://www.codeplex.com/SPDActivities).    I tried the standard CopyItem sharepoint designer activity and got the same results.

I haven't gone through the code but I wonder if the way in which the workflow collects data from listitems isn't causing the problem.  The workflow must be calling into your custom field class to request the data in the source field, perhaps there is a method that isn't properly overridden?

Hi jasont,

I'm quite busy now, I'll try to look at it as fast as possible.

Btw, thanks for your message :o)

Hi jasont,

I try to copy item between two list with:
  • a custom workflow: works fine
  • the SPD Create new item worflow: works fine <= can be a good workaround for you
  • the SPD Copy item worflow: doesn't work

So for the moment, I think that there are something wrong in the CopyItem workflow. I try to install the SPDActivities in a couple of day. Maybe I can find a reason?

Keep in touch,
