    Question Output of a 'Dimension lookup/update' step?

    What would be the output-stream of a 'Dimension lookup/update' step?

    My guess would be each and every row that streams into the step, with the retreived/created surrogate key appended to each row? I can't really tell from the description (http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/EAI/...+Lookup-Update).

    Edit, never mind :-)

    As a result of the lookup or update operation of this step type, a field is added to the stream containing the technical key of the dimension. In case the field is not found, the value of the dimension entry for not found (0 or 1, based on the type of database) is returned.
    TIA
