MOSS2007: The data source control failed to execute the insert command

When I was trying to initiate workflow from MOSS2007 to a list, an error page: The data source control failed to execute the insert command is appearing. This was upsetting me, since previously there was nothing wrong with my workflow. Then I asked uncle Google to get answer of my problem.

So, all you need to do are:

  1. Go to Settings > List Settings (web)
  2. Under Permission and Management, select Workflow Settings
  3. You will find your workflow name there, and then click on Remove a workflow
  4. Mark all instances to Remove (don’t worry, your workflow itself, will not be deleted. It is just detached from list)
  5. Use MOSS Designer, open that workflow, and save again. This will re-attach with your list
  6. Now, try again to initiate workflow. It should be working
