Apple Automator help needed

Hello,
I'm challenged with an Apple Automator Folder Action, specifically the PDF Library's  "Search PDFs" function.
 
My rule is quite simple in the Search PDFs dialogue.  "Content" "contains" "Water Bill".  Saved.  When I pull it back up, criteria reads as entered.  If I run it within Automator, it is fine.
 
Yet when a file is dropped into the trigger folder, the Automator script fires but then I am prompted to enter the criteria for the Search PDFs function. (back to the default: "Title" "is like" "[empty text box]"   It is not retaining my criteria.  I do not have any options enabled for the Search PDFs function.
 
I've got about 200+ automator scripts used for paperless filing and working fine, but this one is driving me nuts.  This is my first (frustrating) experience with Search PDFs.
 
Hazel can handle my need, but I'd rather not invest in yet another tool when Mavericks should be able to handle.
 
Running latest version of Mavericks.
 
I did search this board and someone else did seem to have the same issue with Search PDFs not retaining the settings.  No reply to that question.
 
I appreciate any help.
 
Thanks in advance.
