Subject 回复: 回复: How to create table like other databases' table?
Date Thu, 26 May 2011 05:40:43 GMT
I can't do  it using hive 0.6. may be hive didn't support  it in 0.6.

 Hive does support a cross-database query.

For e.g.,


hive> create database test;
OK
Time taken: 0.456 seconds
hive> use test;
OK
 Time taken: 0.065 seconds
hive> create table test1 (a string);
OK
Time taken: 0.145 seconds
hive> use default;
OK
Time taken: 0.059 seconds
 hive> create table test2 like test.test1;
OK
Time taken: 0.162 seconds
hive> describe extended test2;
OK
a	string
 
...


Tested on Hive trunk.

 Hi,

Hive supports 'CREATE TABLE ... LIKE ...' statement. so you can create a table like following:


CREATE TABLE test2 LIKE test1;


Syntax:
  CREATE [EXTERNAL] TABLE [IF NOT EXISTS] table_name   LIKE existing_table_name   [LOCATION
hdfs_path]For more details, See http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hive/LanguageManual/DDL


 Regards,
