    Default Text file input with spoon

    Hi,

    I'm going through the dialog to configure "Text file input" in spoon. This is on windows. I select the "File or directory" from
    the dialog box, so I know i've selected the right dir.

    I then click "Show filename(s)..." and it says:

    "No files found! Please check the filename/directory and regular expression options."

    The regexp field is blank; and the error still occurs if i put something such as * in there. So how should this work? If i put the full directory and filename into the File or directory field it still seems to fail.

    Thanks for any help!

    Ok, If i add the specific filename to the list below then this works.

    However if i pick the directory and put in *.csv as the regexp it still fails.

    Which is a shame, as i can have up to 20 or more csv's in the directory! ( each of the same format )

    Hi,

    You have to specify a wilcard so try .*csv$ (see doc for more details)
