I built a workflow in Designer recently and implemented it in WSS 3.0 with much success. Although now i can no longer find it in designer when i go to modify it. The workflow i built is still working and can be found under workflow settings but it prompts me to use a workflow editing tool. Naturally i open Designer and its not there. What's the deal It has seems to have disappeared completely. I can't seem to figure this one out. help.

Are you sure you navigated to the correct site via SPD It's attached to a specific list and maybe you are opening the main portal site and not the right subsite

This particular site does not have any subsites. There is a possiblity i locked myself out. i recently had to delete my access to this site then readmit myself the day after.

Has anyone figured out a solution to this problem. I am seeing the same symptoms, workflow process still works but it does not show up in the site under Sharepoint designer. Please advise.

me three. Workflow still executing, can see it in the IE interface "change workflow settings" but it's not under workflows for the site. I'm using WSS 3.0, not MOSS, and the trial version of SharePoint designer, version 12.0.4518.1014. Thanks.

Fixed, if not resolved:

I went into SharePoint designer and created a new, blank workflow. I went into the Workflows folder and saw it (the new workflow) there. I had to go to a meeting, and when I came back, the workflows were there. I don't know if the cure was creating the new workflow to "seed" the SharePoint designer, or leaving it alone or both. Nor care, for now.

I've seen this behavior.

First chek your permissions on the site you are administering. Has there been a change

If not, then try to login to the site in Sharepoint Designer as another user, preferably the site collection administrator and see if your workflows reappear. The workflow folder is there, but SPD hide it from you for some reason. Adding another workflow might also help display the workflows folder again.

SPD doesn't refresh like you think. It refreshes like Front Page...AGGGGHHH!!! I know I know2 I said it...but this was built on FP server extensions.

That said in SPD go to site and use recalculate hyperlinks (remember this from FP ) NOW go to view / refresh.

that should do it. If not close all apps shut down computer, shut down the server...go get a friend you can get intimate with knock back some wine and try again tomorrow. It aint worth the aggrivation for a M$ hiccup I am sure it will reappear ;o)

seriously the recal hyper / refresh should do it.
