Hello,

I am trying to set up Database connection in Table output.

I need to connect to MS SQL Express 2012. I am using MS SQL Server and Native(JDBC) options and I am getting the following error below.

I simply downloaded JDBC driver, but not sure how to install it, and if it is possible to install at all.

Here is where I took it
http://sourceforge.net/projects/jtds/

Could anybody give me any pointers?




Error connecting to database: (using class net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver)
Unable to get information from SQL Server: DANDA.




org.pentaho.di.core.exception.KettleDatabaseException:
Error occured while trying to connect to the database


Error connecting to database: (using class net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver)
