      Hide

      Create time dim - error occurs when I create hop from select hours & select minutes to cartesian join. To reproduce:
      (A) Create hours using 3 steps:
      1) Generate rows - 24 (hours)
      2) Hop to 'add sequence' step 1 (hours_increment & rename to hours)
      3) Hop to 'select values' (select only hours_increment)

      (B) Create minutes with 3 steps:
      1) Generate rows - 60 (minutes)
      2) Hop to 'add sequence' step 1 (minutes_increment)
      3) Hop to 'select values' (select only minutes_increment &rename to minutes)

      (C) Hop from (A3) to cartesian ... works fine
      (D) Hop from (B3) to Cartesian ... An unexpected error occurred in Spoon: null
