Problems in tutorial 3

  • #40482
    Dennis Young

    hey guys,
    I was going through the sandbox tutorial 3 and executed:

    create table temp_batting (col_value STRING);


    LOAD DATA INPATH ‘/user/sandbox/Batting.csv’ OVERWRITE INTO TABLE temp_batting;

    I checked the file browser and found the Batting.csv was consumed but the temp_batting is still empty.

    any clues on this?

    Try this: LOAD DATA INPATH ‘/user/hue/Batting.csv’ OVERWRITE INTO TABLE temp_batting;

    You can use the file browser (one of the icons at the top) to see the actual path.

    Hi Dennis,

    is there a problem with the fields format, or the data typing from the csv file?

    I too have the same problem for Tutorial 3. I have uploaded the file ‘Batting.csv’ to /user/hue/.
    But when I execute the query LOAD DATA INPATH ‘/user/hue/Batting.csv’ OVERWRITE INTO TABLE temp_batting; temp_batting is still empty. Batting.csv was deleted after execution.

    Please help.

    LOAD DATA INPATH ‘/user/hue/Batting.csv’ OVERWRITE INTO TABLE temp_batting;

    is not loading the contents of the .csv file, even though the file is consumed by hive, but temp_batting is empty., Please help.
    P.S : Moderator, i like this tutorial very much, these kind of errors making me to stall at one place. Please clear my doubt.
