    Default how create a table of pointer to file

    Hello,

    Just wonder if any part of Kettle can automate the process to create a table (including only e.g. name_of_directory, date_of_file, file_name, etc) of pointers to files in my file systems.

    My thought is then I can upload files to website, by referencing to this table, then I can let customers reference the documents they want.

    Thanks.

    As in one of the previous posts today... sure... but it depends what you use at pointer, and you may have to hardcode some things in your transformation.

    Regards,

    Sven,

    In this light, which function(s) inside Pentaho I should use to do it?


    Thanks, Dove
