This is another issue associated to a Previous Post.

Currently I have a process that does the following...

Triggered by a change to specific attributes on the Project.
Step 1-8 - Performs a comparison and sets an attribute on the Project.
These steps work as defined with no issues...

Until, I add step 9.
Step 9 (as outlined in my previous post), pulls some of the Project attributes and then using XML, populates a new line in a custom object. (Basically, it captures the status history of the project.)

Step 9 works as expected... except all the field values defined in steps 1 through 8 are lost and reset to the default values.
It seems that the values are not saved and when the XML runs, it drops the values altogether. Some of these values are the ones being set in the history and that seems to work. They are passed to the history sub-object before being dropped on the project.

I could just rerun the steps a second time after the xml, but that is a p.i.t.a.
Is there a way to force a save prior to step 9 being run?
