Exists and Find Child Property didn't work

Dear Team,

Today suddenly i got below type mismatch issue in various screen while executing script .It was working fine last night and also working fine in other workstation today  without change . I really felt so bad because I am unable to figure out route cause and also same script worked well in last night  and other work station.I have reinstalled test complete 2-3 time but i didn't get answer why still happening this issue .

I tried to debug function and realized that it is giving error when 'Exists' method called .When i debug code line by line it is working fine but when i removed debug point then it is still giving same error .

Could you please help me on this?

Thanks you
