Detour on Input file selection




I am designing an analytical app where I have two files, File A and File B and one Data cleansing operation. Either of the two files can be an input to this data cleansing operation. I need a UI where the user can select which of the two files need to be processed. 

I know I can use the detour tool but I am not clear how to use it in this case.

Here is another option (I was slower at posting that Ryan) which uses the "delete tool" action but our solutions are very similar.
