    You can change the link condition from Green (Success) to Always/Any (Grey) to account for when the Find and Replace doesn't find the pattern.

    Hi Tony, 

    I have tried this, but the sub-chain incorporating this is giving me the warning and chain including this sub-chain also not completing with success message

    Kindly advise.

    Thanks,

    Madhuri Desai

    Hi Madhuri,

    At this point, I'd need more information to help you.  I need a screenshot of the log tab on the errored node to better understand the issue you are facing.

    Hi Tony,

    Attaching screenshot1 where I had the special character like (") in my file using F&R command, I successfully replaced it.

    Screenshot 2 has no character like ("), but F&R command is warning as pattern was not found and entire status of chain is a warning, which is not acceptable.

     

    Kindly advise.

    Thanks,

    Madhuri Desai.

    Hi Madhuri, Since a warning is expected when the pattern is not found, you can set the chain result to pass at the end of the chain logic. More information on setting a chain result can be found at https://support.workiva.com/hc/en-us/articles/360047674551-Set-a-chain-s-result
