Thread: Pentaho Update widget

  1. #1

    Default Pentaho Update widget


    I receive a file with about 120K records and use the Update widget to look up values in the DB and then perform the Updates. Unfortunately I am finding out that some records were skipped and updates were not performed. Any ideas why? The database is mysql.

    One nice trick is to use error control with that update step. If you put any steps after it and connect them, you can right click on the update step and define error handling. This will allow you to observe which rows are not being inserted. You can figure out if it's dirty, untrimmed data or something else by previewing or saving a CSV to disk.
