    Default HELP with the get fields function

    Hi everybody!

    Im using a Mysql conection and when I push the "get fields" button from the "select values" transformation, the next message appear:

    Unable to close prepared statement after determining SQL layout
    You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'OPTION SQL_SELECT_LIMIT=DEFAULT' at line 1

    Im using the new PDI 5.0.1 and I never had this problem with the previous version.

    The OPTION keyword in SET OPTION SQL_SELECT_LIMIT=DEFAULT was deprecated since MySQL 5.1 and support was removed in 5.6.
    Are you sure you use a JDBC driver compatible with your MySQL version?
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
