Subject RE: FileAlreadyExistsException Parent path is not a directory
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2013 13:39:24 GMT
Is log the file or the directory..

Creating an external table over a directory might me easier, as it would apply to any log
file placed into the folder.

If log is the file try

LOCATION '/a/b/c/d/';


If log is a directory try
LOCATION '/a/b/c/d/log/';

Gr Arthur
