Before you create a workflow type, you must first create a query that will access the table fields for the workflow document. The following procedure describes how to create a query that will be used by the workflow type.
To create a query for a workflow type
In the AOT, right-click the Queries node, and then click New Query. A query group displays under the Queries node.
Right-click the new query and then click Rename. Enter a name for the query.
Expand the new query, right-click the Data Sources node, and then click New Data Source. A data source group displays under the Data Sources node.
Right-click the new data source group and then click Properties.
In the Properties sheet, set the Table property to the main table for the document type for which you are defining a workflow.
In the AOT, right-click the new query and then click Save.
