Copy person column

I have a workflow that create an item in another site and there is a person column. When I don’t specify any type, I get don’t have any error but the result is not what I expect, it gives me something like :


                NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users



And when I try different return type, it goes in error, either gives that one : “Create Site Specific Item Activity Invalid data has been used to update the list item. The field you are trying to update may be read only” when I tried display names, or that one : “Coercion Failed: Unable to transform the input lookup data into the requested type.” (but I don’t remember when, because I tried a lot of things)


I tried to use a workflow variable but the problem remains, I don’t know if it could be the solution but if it is, I don’t know what matches. I tried the user id like I found on the TechNet website : SP2010 Workflow - How to copy data from a person column to another person column? but It didn’t work either (I don’t remember if it went in error or just gave the id and not the name)


Does anyone know the solution?


Thanks a lot.
