    +title: Registering Files into HAWQ Internal Tables
    +The `hawq register` utility loads and registers HDFS data files or folders into HAWQ
internal tables. Files can be read directly, rather than having to be copied or loaded, resulting
in higher performance and more efficient transaction processing.
    +Data from the file or directory specified by \<hdfsfilepath\> is loaded into the
appropriate HAWQ table directory in HDFS and the utility updates the corresponding HAWQ metadata
for the files. Either AO for Parquet-formatted in HDFS can be loaded into a corresponding
table in HAWQ.
    +You can use `hawq register` either to:
    +-  Load and register external Parquet-formatted file data generated by an external system
such as Hive or Spark.
    +-  Recover cluster data from a backup cluster for disaster recovery. 
    +Requirements for running `hawq register` on the client server are:
    +-   Network access to and from all hosts in your HAWQ cluster (master and segments) and
the hosts where the data to be loaded is located.
    +-   The Hadoop client configured and the hdfs filepath specified.
    +-   The files to be registered and the HAWQ table must be located in the same HDFS cluster.
    +-   The target table DDL is configured with the correct data type mapping.

    Need to make the above list items parallel.  And each should be a stand-alone sentence
if you keep the punctuation after them.  Ie) change to "Network access is available between
all hosts in your HAWQ cluster (master and segments) and the hosts from which the data to
load will be loaded."
