Workflow output write to file vs output

I want to be able to open a file, search for a word in the file, replace a word in the file, and save the file with the replacement. 


When it comes to that last part, using write to file does not modify the original source file at all, and output does not create a new file with the replacement word either. 


I am not indexing, and I am not using HCP. My data connectors work. My pipeline performs all stages correctly. It almost seems as if I need a stage after replace in my pipeline, that takes the output of replace and sends it to HCI_content so that the change is written to the original source (writefile) or to a new target (output file).
