    Default property input: cannot see other inputs

    Hi,
    I need to append some fields retrieved with "property input" step, but it seems to me that this step hide other inputs.
    For example, I created a 3 steps transformations (hops from 1->2->3):
    1. generate rows: fieldA=2
    2. property input
    3. dummy step

    My dummy step sees only input from #2 and doesn't see fieldA.
    I am using pdi.3.2.0.GA.

    Any suggestions, please?

    Thanks in advance.
    Nicola

    Sounds normal behavior. What would you like to happen with the output of A and B: Join (how?), Merge, Union, ...?

    What I need to do is retrieving new fields from PROPERTY INPUT (I need to denormalize them) and append those fields to the current main stream (with other fields).

    So what you're saying is you want to join the one row from B with the many rows from A?
    Try a "Join Rows (Cartesian product)" step.

    Good luck,

    Matt
