How to use the retry scope

Hi everyone
I have a sequence that checks if an Excel table is legit and if so go to the next sequence for another check, in another program. I have to check them both before the real process will start running.
And I want that the second sequence will do 3 runs in a row and after that, if they all fail, throw an exception that the second sequence couldn’t complete the checking process.
and that the big program can’t start!
so I entered the second sequence into a ‘retry scope’ (with 3 retries) but for some reason, it didn’t do all the runs and just stopped after the first run (I have in the ‘condition’ an ‘element exist’ that checks if the program went to the next page…)
