Workflow status

On AE 11.2 ,   I have several flows that are manipulating files.   If one of the flows does not have any files to process on a given day, I want to cancel the rest of the workflow --- I have the cancel working with CANCEL_UC_OBJECT(Flow_ID, ALL),  but I actually want this to end with a 'Normal Status' but with Status Text  and Archive Key1 set to a literal 'no files to process'.  

 

-I can set pre-conditions on the each of the remaining steps checking a variable and skipping if the variable = 'no files to process',  but that requires changes to each task properties tab for every subsequent step in the flow.  

-Or nest the flow and move the file selection to a higher level flow and only invoke the lower flow when needed.   Strikes me as unnecessary complication

 

---- the files being tested are remote (not in our datacenter), so using RA_FTP to check for file existence.

 

How can I set the status code OR return code OR status_text OR Archive_key1 value for these flows?

 

Ideas?
