Hi, Have a look at threads like:

The helps says:

In order to make it possible to check the runtime system's program execution (work item manager and workflow manager) in debug mode after execution of an object method, internal communication within the workflow system cannot take place asynchronously. To achieve this behavior of the runtime system, you can execute this as the recipient of the work item, by choosing Extras ® Execute for test. Enter /h in the command field first to go to the debug mode.

A dialog task can always be debugged in the usual manner by putting a break point in the associated method. For a background task, if it is still in DEV, you can temporarily change it to a Dialog, debug, fix and then change it back.

Workflow debugging is not a simple process. You may have to use a different transaction depending on where a problem is. The following link may give you a good start.

Also, please note that Workflow has a new home in the Business process management (BPM) forum in the SAP NetWeaver General section. Please post any future questions there.
