    Angry Error using subtransform

    I am using version 3.0.1 build 534. After modifying a transform that ran correctly under 2.5.0, I now get the following error:

    008/01/02 16:44:57 - Mapping (sub-transformation).0 - ERROR (version 3.0.1, build 534 from 2007/12/12 12:28:23) : No valid mapping was specified!
    2008/01/02 16:44:57 - Mapping (sub-transformation) - ERROR (version 3.0.1, build 534 from 2007/12/12 12:28:23) : Error initializing step [Mapping (sub-transformation)]

    The modification was on a table input operator. The sub-transform has the correct input/output fields. Is this a bug?

    Thanks,

    Ed

    The mappings were pretty heftily modified in v3.

    First run a verify and then maybe attach your old and new transformation.

    I did run a verify and everything was ok. This is a major concern for us because we use the subtransform mapping to record error handling data. I even created a test transform that uses this subtransform and the error still exists. We currently have over 350 transforms that utilize this error logging etl transformation. What are the options: 1) put all the subtransform operators in each transform or 2) revert back to 2.5?

    Short term revert back to 2.5 and give us a good example.

    Just an additional observation. When I edit the subtransform, both the "use a file for the mapping transformation" and "use a mapping transform from the repository" radio buttons are selected. This could explain the error message "No valid mapping was specified" because the file entry is null.
