SYMPTOMS

A workflow is defined to be triggered on a "Record attribute change" condition in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. However, the workflow is unexpectedly triggered multiple times even though the value that the workflow monitors is not changed. Then, an infinite loop situation occurs, and the workflow fails.

CAUSE

Some entity attributes, such as the "Duration" attribute of the "Appointment" entity, may be unexpectedly updated by using the old value when you update other attributes of an entity instance of this kind. Therefore, customizations such as a workflow that monitors the "Duration" value change may be triggered unexpectedly.

This problem is fixed in the latest cumulative update rollup for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
