    I want to load data from table A into an external table B in Hive. Once loaded I want to refer data in table B using Pig for row wise operations.

    Currently once the data is loaded into external table – the actual data file has a name like 00000_0. is there a way I can specify what file name to use so that i could refer that in my Pig code ?

    Thanks Ted

    Yes, this is quite helpful. I think I’ll go with sqoop to get the data from Hive.. understood why it doesn’t let us control the file names.

    Thanks again
