Return value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAssociation
The workflow association that was added.


Exception Condition

The argument passed to the workflowAssociation parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The IsDeclarative property on the workflow association is true, but user-defined workflows are not enabled for this Web application. For more information, see the UserDefinedWorkflowsEnabled property.

The workflow association references a task list or a history list that is not on the same Web site as the list to which the workflow association is added.

The workflow association is not valid—for example, if the Name property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
