In Invoice: Validate Button (action  called from workflow) doesn't seem to work for few records..

Any idea why it happens like this...


I tried refreshing the form, cancelling the record in vain, but just validate doesn't seem to work, I tried for other records it works fine.. any body have faced like this kind of issue


Can you describe the procedure when the "validate doesn't seem to work" exactly?

Well finally I found the reason behind it, Workflow for that particluar record was not initiated.. 

My Scenario:
       I had inserted a couple of records from backend (PostgreSQL), hence for those records the Workflow was not initiated by default, So later when I established the call for workflow for those records, then everything [especially action buttons] works fine..!!

Code goes something like this..
       self.create_workflow(cr, uid, [ID])
