    Default how to populate dimension table from OLTP

    I just started with this amazing tool kettle with the intention of making 2/3 dimension table. I have a database in mysql with 30 tables. Now my intension is to join 4/5 tables and with their data populate the dimension tables.
    Allthe documents saying about taking input from text/csv files but mine is a database and then I have to join couple of them and out of that have to make dim table in one go. Which options from the left should I choose for this?

    For Kettle it doesn't matter where the data comes from. Just feed it into the "Dimension Lookup/Update" step and you'll get a hybrid slowly changing dimension.
