Email Validation Problem on Sign Up

Hello Bubblers!
I am trying to build a validation workflow into my sign up process.

ie. if an email has already registered, then the sign up procedure does something different.

I am trying to use…

However, in testing the search always comes up as “0” and triggers the actual sign up flow even when there is a record in the database.

I got this method from the Forums.

Anyone see what I am doing wrong?

I know that it has something to do with bubble not recognising that email is already exists.
Here’s my workflow

[update] Found the solution:
