Error using Render tool for one part of workflow and Output tool for another part

8 - Asteroid

I have a workflow that has two "sections":

The first section grabs data from an Excel file worksheet and then uses the Table and Render tools to highlight specific rows based on a condition and outputs it. 


The second section grabs data from the same Excel file, but a different worksheet, and simply uses the Output tool to output it to the same output file as the first, but to a different worksheet.


When I run this workflow, the Excel file outputted seems to get corrupted for some reason. I got the error asking if I want to recover the data because the file has unreadable content.


If I just run the first OR second sections individually, then no issue. It's when running both of them that will cause this issue.


Any ideas on how to fix this?
