    Default Error trapping in the job

    Challenge:

    If a transformation fails, need to trap the error information and perform alternate job flow, prior to executing the next transformation in the job.

    Question:

    How can you retrieve the error information in the job, when a transformation fails, such that you can then alter the job flow?

    Add another Job entry, link it to the transformation.
    Right click on the hop, select Evaluation -> Follow when result is False

    I understand how to add another transformation lined to a "false" hop. My question is how do I retrieve the error information, so that I can then, let's say attach that data to variables, and use in the subequent "Error transformation"?
