A bit type field is unexpectedly set back to the default value when you run a workflow rule to update some other fields of a record in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0
Article ID: 949732 - View products that this article applies to.
When you try to assign default values to some bit-attribute fields in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Workflow Designer, one or more of the following problems occurs:
This problem occurs because the bit-attribute fields are reset when a workflow rule is triggered against a record that updates a field in another form. However, the Jscript code only assigns a default value to a field whose class name is Radio Button. Therefore, if the class name of the field is List Box or Check Box, the default value is not assigned to the field.
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:
