Subject INSERT OVERWRITE TABLE with IF NOT EXISTS
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2017 15:40:36 GMT
Hi,
According to https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+DML#LanguageManualDML-Syntax.1
we support
INSERT OVERWRITE TABLE tablename1 [PARTITION (partcol1=val1, partcol2=val2 ...) [IF NOT EXISTS]]
select_statement1 FROM from_statement;


What might the intent of IF NOT EXISTS be here?

Thanks
Eugene
