Update Multiple list items using SharePoint Designer Workflow

Simply can not be done.

  • Numerous limitations to the structure and flow of your workflow. Examples include not being able to update multiple items, or see if the value of a field has changed - see here for more details. Major limitation vs. Visual Studio approach
  • You cannot loop. If you want to perform an action on say all items in a list or all child items for a parent, you simply cannot do it unless you know how to lookup each item in the list at design time and have an action for each of those items.

It can be done, you have to make a special utility list though. Here it is http://sharepointsolutions.blogspot.com/2008/05/looping-through-items-in-sharepoint.html
