    Hi Joshua,

    I'm not entirely sure I understand the scenario but the attached data flow may provide some pointers.

    The Run Dependencies provide a mechanism to sequence the execution of sub-flows within the data flow. 

    You can use some Python code within a Transform node to delete a specified file:

    Once the file has been deleted you can process and write the data to the intermediate file name. 

    Another Transform node can be used to rename a file:

    See the attached .lna file.

    I think this is on the right track. I made a slight adjustment to your "Delete File If Exists" Transform Node and I was able to get what I wanted. Thanks so much for your assistance!
