    Default Input from terminal?

    I need to validate data stored on PostgreSQL against data that can only be captured via IBM terminal (in my case, an IBM terminal emulator called "myEXTRA!"). Now, I know PDI doesn't an input step like this but... well, I guess it's more a sugestion/request than anything else.

    So you need to do something like screen scraping?

    yeah, that'd be it. I'm currently getting the help of a couple friends to create a macro on Excel to extract data from the terminal, then later I'll use this excel on Pentaho. Real simple excel file, actually, 4 columns, nothing too fancy.

    So far I got around with Excel/VBA macro. Which brings me to another question: is there any way/workaround to running Excel/VBA macro from within Kettle? That's the only thing left to automate on this part...
