Output file use as input?

8 - Asteroid



Is there a way to create a automated process to input a output file?


I have 1 input file each month I need to append new data to it to keep it up to date. The following month I use the newly appended file as the new input and repeat the process. Then this combined file is used as part of my overall workflow.


Currently I have to manually rename the combined file as new input. Is there a way for a workflow to read the current input file, append data, output file. Then the following period read the latest output file , append data, overwrite the current file. Thanks

Yes just add the 'block until done' tool before your output tool
