Subject RE: (Get the current date -1) in Hive

In the case here it literally is taking the UNIX timestamp, formatting it in yyyy-mm-dd format
and then subtracting the specified integer (in this case 1)

Thanks Carla for the suggestion, I am currently using Hive 0.6 and that Hive version doesn't
supports variable substitution with hiveconf variable, so that is the reason I was looking
for some other alternative-

So you are saying basically, If I add your suggestion in my query like below-

select * from lip_data_quality where dt = 'date_sub(FROM_UNIXTIME(UNIX_TIMESTAMP(),'yyyy-MM-dd')
, 1)';

Then the above query will be interpreted as like below-

select * from lip_data_quality where dt = '2012-08-05';

Am I right? And what does date_sub do here? I am not familiar with that.

Correct me if I am wrong.

If you are just using it in a query, you can do this:
date_sub(FROM_UNIXTIME(UNIX_TIMESTAMP(),'yyyy-MM-dd') , 1)

I generally do my date calculations in a shell script and pass them in with a hiveconf variable.

guess you can use sub_date, but you have to get today by some outside script.
