    Default Update table data with value in variable

    Hi Guys!!

    I am new to Kettle and getting an issue while passing the value of variable in Execute SQL Script task. Below is the image of the kettle I am trying:

    In "Set variable", I am assigning the output of "Table Input 2" to variable CURRENTTS and then based on this ${CURRENTTS} value I am able to get the data from "Table input" step and then the data is getting populated into other table using "Table Output".
    Now after "Table output" I want to update the value of variable ${CURRENTTS} into a table for which I used "Get variable" & "Execute SQL Script" but at this point ${CURRENTTS} becomes NULL.

    Please suggest me ways to update the variable value in the table.

    You cannot set and get variables within the same transformation.
    In one transformation you set the variables, in a second transformation you retrieve them.
    Both transformations have to be within the same job.
