I am generating a an AutoGUID from SQL but need to pass this GUID to a workflow, when I try to pass the GUID to the workflow I am getting a conversion error. 

do I need to convert it before the workflow starts or can I do some conversion in the workflow itself?

What is the data type of the data field in your workflow?

It is number

GUID can contain non-numerical characters. Have you tried setting your data field type to string, then check if you can pass your GUID into your workfow?


Hi CraigBrook,


To add on what boringNerd has said, it will be best to convert the data field to text first before passing it to the workflow.
