    Default Transformation Executor - grouping does not work for strings

    I have steps:
    Table In => Transformation executor

    When I try to use 'Parameter name' on tab Parameters taken from string field (same field is used in Row grouping tab, 'field to group rows on') then parameter is not passed to next transformation.
    All works with integers or numbers.

    This is normal?
    Regards

    Tried in Kettle 8.0 - works.
    Edition 8 was most stable so far. When I use 8.2 I never know if I'm doing something wrong or this is Pentaho fault...

    There was a horrible bug in 8.1 and that didn't work, but it's working for me in 8.2 (although the Excel input/output step had some bugs in 8.2 if I remember correctly, I'm using a later version that includes some patches for bugs detected, it's not available in Sourceforge) Maybe 8.3 will be free of bugs in old steps, I haven't tried it yet.
