Hive / HCatalog Forum

Parsing string

  • #26114

    While I’m at it, here’s another question about loading data into HCatalog.
    If I need to specify start- and stop point (as in mid(string, 4,7) – how would I do that?

    Right now I got the feel that there is a lot of work to be done to the infile before I actually can load it.
    I’m used to tell customers that they can send me any kind of file – and I like to keep it that way :-)

    Hi Thomas,

    I am researching if this can be done in hcatalog. You may need to do some pig processing on the file before loading it on to a hcatalog table.
