Stop flow if count > 0

Meteoroid

I have a flow which I would like to stop if there are any rows in one of my left joins. 

 

I found this posting which details exactly how to do just that.

However when I add this to my flow the condition fails no matter what I do.  Here is the portion of the flow.

Here you can see the result is the count equals zero.

Here is the configuration of the test tool.

I believe I've set this up so that if the first cell in field 'Count' is greater than 0 it should fail, but it is failing when it equals zero. 

 

I've confirmed the field is setup as an integer, and have tried numerous combinations with no change in result.

Hi,

 

You've got your logic reversed.  The example in the post you linked is a workflow which will fail if the test returns 0 records.  If you change your test to [Count] = 0 that will correctly throw an error if the Count is any value other than 0.

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks!  That worked.
