What would be the order of execution if I have multiple workflow rules updating the same field

I am not able to figire out which workflow rule will update a field value if I have multiple workflow rules updating the same field.
Let us assume I have 3 workflow rules with 3 different criteria and all the wf rules updates the same field (x) if criteria meets.

If I have a scenario where all the criteria for 3 wf rules meet and 3 workflow rules triggers and try to update the same field(x).
What would be the result value of x? which wf will update this field?

Hi Javed,

Currently we do not have any specific order of execution,apart from the fact that all workflow field updates preceed othe actions.
Incase of multiple field updates,there is not presently any way to control the order in which field updates occur (unless you make them time-triggered).  Immediate actions can be said to execute in parallel -- they are not necessarily sequential -- so there may not even be an order.
If you really need an order then you could do your updates from an Apex trigger instead.

Kindly mark this as an answer in case this resolves the issue.
