  • Hi Jason,

    Thanks a lot for your quick reply.

    I downloaded the CRM2011workflowuntils.codeplex.com
    Followed the instructions in document and  Created the Yes and No Steps for attribute in work flow.

    If the condition statisfies yes the I would like to create opportunity record this step working fine.
    But it comes to second step means attribute = No then I want to deactive or delete the record in Opportunity entity .

    Please find the below error screen shot .

    Thanks, Toushu

  • Hi,

    You cannot Delete/Deactivate records using System workflows. You will have to develop a custom workflow solution as mentioned by Jason.

    But I would rather go with a Plugin approach than a system/custom workflow to develop this requirement.
