You need to set the criteria so it searches only for those walls that you want to override.
So with the 2 criteria as shown in you image (Element type is wall and Renovation status is As Built to Sanction) that should only select walls with that particular renovation status.
You can add more criteria to include/exclude certain elements.
The criteria filters in or out the elements you want to override.
