    "I am most grateful for your efforts in this matter, and hope that on another occasion it/we/they will be successful."

    It would help a lot to know more about the context of this.

    Colloquially, you could say 'Thanks anyway' or 'Thanks for trying'. (As Anglika says, context would help.)
