    Default Can you have same name steps in different transformation but in the same job?

    I'm still unclear about the naming conversion of Kettle. Some times I encounter problems with naming causes.

    So what exactly is the rule of naming in Kettle? is there any documentation on it or where can I find some info about this?

    Thank you

    Hi.
    As far as I know, 2 steps in the same transformations must have different names.
    Across different transformations they can be the same, even if they are in the same job.
    BUT - for practical reasons I would try to have different names!
    Let's say that you want to check where an error occurred: if 2 steps have the same name, you don't know which one caused the issue.

    You're right Mick. It's really hard to debug!
