    Angry How can I use Pentaho Report Output

    I wanted to generate PDF files using "Pentaho Report Output" component using Transformation.

    Below are the steps I performed -

    1 - Created Transformation with below steps -

    Table Input --> Filter Rows (based on some condition) -->"Pentaho Report Output"

    2) Created Report by report designer

    Set data "Pentaho Data Integration" of Filter Rows (above) and created report and published to console.

    and want to refer the published report in DI transformation but getting error on component "Pentaho Report Output". and unable to generate pdf file..

    Is this can be achieved ? No related help available for the same.

    Pentaho Report Output is a step designed to RUN a report file, not push data into a report that already exists.
    You cannot circularly reference the Transformation and the Report.

    Have a good look at the Pentaho Reporting Output Example transform in your install directory (in the samples sub-directory)
