What is the most efficient way to filter and split a workflow into 5 segments?


I have a XML document.  It is a beast.  It contains 5 books.  I want to immediately split the workflow into individual segments for each book.


The first parse is set to BookNumber.  (See tree below).  I then filter on the value returned before proceeding with parsing each section.  


Is this the most efficient way?  Thanks

hi @hellyars,


If you could provide the sample workflow or a file, your question can be answered in a better way. 




You can use all the conditions in the same filter tool by using ‘AND’ between statements

Your use of MANY filter tools is the way that I would recommend. It is more efficient because only records qualifying are evaluated.

It also simplifies the downstream logic.
