Hi -

We're evaluating using Pentaho as an ETL tool and a metadata repository. In the repository role, we're going to want to define data structures based on incoming information and, later, create the physical data structures.

I've just been at this a couple of days, but so far everywhere I look, it seems that Pentaho wants to start with the physical table and move on from there to logical models.

Is what I'm thinking of possibile?

Thanks,
- Rick
