NW - Create Item action > New item id but no document

Hi!

I wonder if someone can help me on this one. I have a list workflow creating a document in another library. In most cases (8 out of 10) it works smoothly but not so smoothly always.

I have a "Create Item" action and I have an "Update item" action. The create item action creates the document and stores the new item id in a variable. The Update item action saves the variable to a column in the "current item".

I can see the new item (document) id stored in the column but there´s no document with that id in the document library. The next document created in the library gets the next id and the id created before is skipped. There´s no trace of the other document, not even in the recycle bin.

Any ideas on what can be happening here?

Have you checked library settings - files with no checked in version?

Hi Cassy and thank you for your answer. The missing files are sadly not there.

One thing I tried. I added "Commit pending changes" action. At least for now the logic is working. For now.
