Subject Re: Hive Loading Zip CSV Files

This question might be more appropriate for the Apache Hive user list, so
redirecting it there.

However to answer your question:
>From the little I've read about PKZip, they follow the standard zip format.
So the question you are really asking is if Hive supports reading from zip
files. As far as I know, the answer is no. This is because Hadoop doesn't
have an InputFormat for reading zip files:
There is also a Hive user email thread that tackles the same question:

Having said that, a possible workaround would be to unzip the zip files and
use a different compression codec (e.g. Snappy) on SequenceFile's for
storing your files on HDFS.

Good luck!
