I have not idea about how to use properly executeWorkflow node

Describe the issue/error/question

I have done one big workflow and it is too much big to maintain. So I have decided to divide it in 2 workflows due that there is two different and well defined process inside.
To do that I have tried to do a proof of concept to learnt to use “Execute Workflow” node. But I don’t achieve to run it properly. Could tell me someone what I am doing wrong, please?
Thank you very much for your time!

What is the error message (if any)?


Please share the workflow

the source worklow is the next:

and the worklow that receives the calling is the next:

I have tried the second one without the trigger but then I cannot activate it because it is appear the next message:

Share the output returned by the last node

OK: true

Information on your n8n setup

  • **n8n version:**0.182.0
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite): N/A
  • **Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:**own
  • **Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]:**desktop app

You do not need the Workflow trigger node in your second workflow. Simply connect the start node to your Function node. Data passed into the “Execute Workflow” node in your first workflow will be passed to the Start node of the second workflow.

Because there is no trigger node, you do not need to activate it because it is invoked by the first workflow.
