Hi @Pradeep_Shiv

Sorry to post this here

When I am trying to Set text into a column in one job portal .instead of variable name if I give hardcode values it is not giving any error.

If I Give a variable name I am getting the below error.

Source: Name (Name) (It is a variable name that has a value assigned from matches activity)

Message: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

Exception Type: UiPath.Core.ElementOperationException

Yesterday did the same code and got no errors ,this one was coming in the newly created code.

hi @Pavan_Srikar …Here you go…

Variable 1= YourRegexvariable0).groups(1).tostring
Variable 2= YourRegexvariable0).groups(2).tostring
Variable 3= YourRegexvariable0).groups(3).tostring

Please check this post where you find the sample xaml similar to yours to handle the groups…
