    Im new to pentaho and i have a question that i think this forum might be able to answer since i´ve been reading a lot of info about pentaho but unfortunatly i just keep getting more confused by the second.
    I want to run reports agains my own mysql database and i dont know how i can connect my database with pentaho..
