Workflow: Initiate Approvals Based on Lookup List

Hi All,

I have a lookup list for software, eg:


Item                   Approver



Visio                    John Smith

Photoshop           Micheal Wiley


This lookup is used in a Nintex form. Users can select multiple options from the list above. The result gets passed to a Single Line of text (but i could change that), with comma delimited values.

How do I setup the resulting workflow to parse through the selected options on the form, and initiate the appropriate approvals. Let's say for instance all 4 were requested, the workflow should determine that Word and Excel are ok to be installed because they have no listed approver, while Visio requires an approval from John and Photoshop requires an approval from Micheal. I'd rather not have 4 workflows spawned off from the original but handle it some other way, such as a Loop. thanks
