Two Workflows in same object - order of execution issue

I am having two Workflows-FieldUpdate formula in same object to update two different fields as Field1 and Field2. And i am using Field1 value on Field2's workflow-FieldUpdate formula. But in my org Field2's workflow is running first and Field1's worflow is running second. So the value is getting wrong.

 

Based on which order two workflow is running on Same object?

Hi Shiva,

Workflow rules execute in the chronological order they are created. So, try deleting the existing ones and recreate them in the order you want them to execute.

Hi Shiva, 

 

It would be better to use a trigger instead as the Order if execution of Workflows is not Officially confirmed. It depends on the DML operations ie.. the sequence of values stored in DB.
