Achieve try on error end try structure in KM

I want to check if the filename string of selection in finder contains chinese characters. If it is true, then, else ...
Cause I cannot find a way to use regex in applescript. I use [ search varaible using regex ( \p{Han}+ ) macro ] in KM. If the output is not empty then... else...
But if the string doesn't contain chinese characters, the KM display error notification, and cancel the macro.
If it's in applescript, I can use try on error end try structure.
[ search varaible using regex ( \p{Han}+ ) macro ]
set findcn to true
on error
set findcn to false
end try
Can I achieve this in KM? Which macro in KM can help me do this? Hope someone can help me.

I think it would be easier to use an If…Then action with a RegEx match test. Example:

If Then with regex <C7E2 200302T110228>.kmmacros (3.8 KB)

Concerning the Search action: It depends on the setting of the action, if it will abort the macro or not. Open the Gear menu of the action and change the setting. See this.

If you don't know an action by heart, always check the Help in the Gear menu:
