Work item does not get executed as expected

Hi Guys,

I am new to workflow and am learning workflow and doing some hands on sessions to get used to the tool.

I am having a strange problem and its described as given below.

First I tried to create a simple standard task for displaying material master. I am triggering this event when a new material is created. This step works fine. I get the task as a workitem in my sap inbox and when I execute the work item it goes to the material master display screen.

After that I created a workflow template and added the above task as a workflow step(activity). I deactivated the triggering event of the task and activated the triggering event at the workflow same as what I had enabled at the task level that is trigger the flow when a material is created.

The workflow gets triggered and I see the work item in SAP Inbox. I tried to execute the work item and it DOES NOT go to the material master screen. I just get a message that the task is completed and the work item moves from the inbox to the outbox as completed item.

My question is why does not the work item go into material master display screen? The task works on its own but when its attached as a workflow step it does not work.

I am on SAP GUI 7.10 and ECC 6.0.

Many thanks in advance.
