update case field




On which object are you writing the workflow? Email are stored as part of Tasks. And from that, you cannot update a field in Case.

Hi Rajesh,


Thanks for your replay , i am writing workflow on Emailmessage 


I guess the Workflow Rule Criteria you're trying to write needs to be written in a formula syntax and cannot be written in a Conditional format .


One more thing I think what you want is to when your Rule Criteria  satisfies you want to do a Field Update and Email that can be very easily by choosing from Workflow Actions .


Make sure that you are not complicating the thing by thinking "Update a field when Email is sent " . No such thing really exists.Field Update and Email are just concurrent process .
