    Default Create dimension


    Please anybody tell me how do we need to create a dimension with kettle.
    We need to use dimension lookup/update.But what are the keys we need to give.Key for field in input stream will be the primary key of input table.
    What will be the key for dimension field .Because we haven't created the dimension yet.

    The keys you should enter in keys tab depends on your data. This Fields in the incoming stream for this step should identify your data in your data warehouse.
    For customer data this can be the customers name or his customer-number. It is used to detect if the incoming row is already in the the dimension, if it has to be inserted or updated.
