Upgrading from SPS 2.0 to SPS 3.0
From many of the posts on the newsgroups it seems that there is a bit of a hang up on one particular problem that many of the Sharepoint Administrators and Developers are hitting when they are upgrading their old version of SPS to the new one. First off, there are 3 different ways to upgrade, but the one that seems to be causing some problems is the one where they take a copy of the old 2.0 database and attach it to a new 3.0 instance.

Undocumented Sharepoint Workflows Details
Have you ever been surrounded by so much information about a subject that you were almost depressed that you still couldn't get anything of substance working? That is exactly the way I am feeling right now about Sharepoint Workflows in Visual Studio 2005. I am trying to create a (what I think should be simple) Escalating Approval Workflow and progress is SSSSSLLLLLLLOOOOOOOWWWW! If you do a search on Google you get a lot of good information on so many aspects creating workflows in VS2005 and Sharepoint. ......
