    Hi Kalyan,

    Are there any error messages when you try to upload the file? is this an archive you are trying to upload and unarchive?



    Did anyone got the answer to this. I am also no table to upload the file in HDP Sandbox from windows.
    I can not find the option ‘Upload a file’ . A pop up comes when I select upload —> files but this pop up does not have any button called ‘Upload a file’
    can anyone help how to upload a file from windows to HDP Sandbox.



    If you use the filebrowser can you upload a file?




    I managed to upload the file from HCatalog where there is an option to upload the file.
    Now I am getting another error in HIVE my first query failed with error invalid compression unknown compression method

    Many Thanks for the help.


    Hi Raja,

    Can you open a new post for the Hive query problem?
    Upload errors from the hive logs and let us know the query you are running.
