    Default Null repository??? Pan fails to run transformation

    When I run pan in the command window (running Win XP, version 2.5.0), and ask it to list the repository it returns my repository name with "[Null]" next to the name.

    If I try to use pan to run a transformation from the repository, it tells me that it can't open the transformation.

    Here are the specifics:

    pan /rep:kettledb /user: admin /pass: xxxxx /trans: pegtest
    Pan - Start of Run
    ERROR: Pan can't continue because the transformation couldn't be loaded.

    pan /listrep=Y
    Pan - Start of Run
    Kettle - reading repositories.xml file
    List of repositories:
    #1: Kettledb [null]

    Can you open the transformation from spoon (using the same repository).

    Yes - I can open and run from Spoon. I only have one repository.

    Default found the problem

    This is amazing to me, but I was putting a space after each parameter in the pan command line (after rep:, etc.). Removing the spaces allowed the command to run successfully.

    Apparently, syntax is very important - but the error that is returned would be more helpful if it said "Syntax error in command line" or something along those lines. Telling the user it can't read from the repository is confusing, to say the least.
