Start a Node only after other Node is finished

In a worflow (see screenshot). first data should be written to the first sheet in the excel file and when this is finished the other excel sheet should be appended.
But because the first sheet contains a lot of data it takes a while and in the meantime the appended sheet is written to the file and when the first sheet is finished it overwrite the appended sheet

Is there a way to wait with running the Excel sheet appender until the first sheet is finished?


Hi @RonG

you can control this with the flow variable ports.
As you already have one between the node 140 and the excel sheet appender, I would add a merge variables node inbetween the two. And use as the second input of the merge variable node the flow variable output port of the Excel Writer node.

Thanks Iris, it did the trick
