Jason Altekruse commented on DRILL-4659:
----------------------------------------

This feature was added last fall, I think we may want to duplicate this information in the
section about "Querying Data" to make it easier to find, but the feature is documented here.

https://drill.apache.org/docs/plugin-configuration-basics/#using-the-formats-attributes-as-table-function-parameters

If you would like to see more examples of usage or information about the features development
this was the JIRA for the feature: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4047

>             Project: Apache Drill
>          Issue Type: Improvement

>            Priority: Minor

> I have a file, that I would like to use in a query, and it can have one or more of the
following properties:
> * Has not extension ==> Drill is unable to handle it.
> * I know it contains data in CSV format, but the field separator is a non standard character
==> Drill is unable to parse it (without modify the storage plugin configuration).
> * Is located in an Amazon S3 bucket ==> I can't rename it.
> * Has a big size ==> It would be expensive to make a copy of it. 
> It would be nice if you can specify, as part of the "select" query, as metadata, relevant
table information as:
> * Data format (CSV, parquet, JSON. etc.)
> * Field delimiter.
