    Default Problem reading GZipped file with CSV File Input Step

    Hi,
    I tried to read a gzipped file with the CSV Input step, but I get the error message:
    Code:
    For performance reasons, this step only supports reading from local files!
    I was wondering if my path is not correctly specified, so I cross checked with the text file input step, and it works:
    gz:/C:\Pentaho\my-files\testing\test.csv.gz

    Does somebody have any ideas why it's not working? Or is it not supported at all?
    Thanks!
    Best regards,
    Diethard

    The "CSV Input" step uses Java NIO (New I/O) to get better performance.
    I would try the "Text File Input" step instead. That one is slower but has a lot of options available.
