Multiple Match Find Replace

Hi,

 

I attached an example workflow below.

I would as an output to have next to a worker, all managers that contain the unit.

For example a worker at department 1.1 should have manager for department 1 and manager for department 1.1.

However the find and replace tool only outputs the most exact match.

Is there another solution?

 

Thanks

You could try doing an append and filtering where the work unit contains the manager unit,

Hi @Dennisklad1 

 

Adding to @PhilipMannering solution. I would add a suggestion/ variation to the solution, use Startwith inplace of contains function.

So that Manager 2.1 is not tagged to Worker 1.2.1 and only to Worker 2.1.1

 

So Worker ID should start with Manger ID

A new problem accured.

I am working on a relativly big database and after running the workflow I get following error:

"Append Fields (14) There were more than 16 records in the source."

 

What can I do?

Hi @Dennisklad1 

 

In append tool Set it to allow all records like below
