RPA Starter Training- Personal Number Reader - Part 3

I’m new to RPA as well as Ui Path. I was following every instruction specified by the Academy.

However, while running the program, I did not get the desired output and got the “Exception Thrown[Assign]” message.

I double-checked each step again to verify what I did is right or not. Is something I need to check more

Kindly help me

If you check the above link, you are supposed to see a message box:
“We have just sent you a yellow hoodie”.

However, when I tried it, it showing nothing… You can see the image shared in the topic. That is the result I got.

Thank you @pattyricarte

In the tutorial, there is no mention of this.

Yes. I am using a substring. How to correct this (for me as a beginner)?

Before Using Sunstring make sure PN variable has value.
you can either using message box activity or Writeline activity to show the value of Pn Variable

Note: Writeline activity show in Output panel

Check first if your variable has a value on it before using the substring .

Thanks @sandeep13
This was the solution given in the tutorial.

If I need to put value, what value should I use in the field initially, please guide me.

I assigned 0 as inital value and this is working…

Thanks to @pattyricarte and @sandeep13
