Detour when no records are present

9 - Comet

Once my system converts generic data to my format, it logs the converted / altered files in my format and then compares it with subsequent generic imports so that only new entries are run through the conversion process (which is extensive). The basic structure works great for when new data is present, but once all of the generic data has been converted a user has to remember to turn off containers to avoid field errors from zero records going through the format conversion process.


Does anyone have an example of a workflow where a detour is being triggered by a count of zero records? It is my first encounter with the detour tool, and thus far I am failing miserably!

I downloaded your program, but there seems to be missing stuff in the workflow.  3 question marks like missing macro.  Can you make it a package and repost?
