Thread: Mysterious "tablename not defined" error in Ubuntu Linux but not Windows XP?

    Question Mysterious "tablename not defined" error in Ubuntu Linux but not Windows XP?


    I have developed a rather simple CSV to Database transformation, using Table Output with statically defined (not from field) table name as the final output step.

    Transformation works fine in Windows XP (32-bit), but in Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit), it fails and I am getting the following error. The same database server, destination table, and user credentials are used in both cases (this is all happening in my development environment). I checked all the obvious things like permissions, correct version of code, etc, but nothing seems out of place. What could cause something like this?

    Pentaho Version is CE 4.3.0-Stable.

    Database connections are "simple-jndi".

    PROBLEM SOLVED. I guess I must have accidentally clicked the "Partition Table" right before I exported to the Linux box.
