Subject Overwrite by selected data from table itself?
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 09:16:48 GMT
Hi all,

I have this scenario to remove certain rows from a hive table. As far as I
understand, hive doesn't provide that functionality.

So, I'm trying to select inverse of what I want to delete and overwrite the
table with that. What do you think of this approach?

I tried to do it but seems it doesn't work as I expect. All data is still
available in the table. what's the reason if it's the correct behavior?
