Subject Re: How to remove Hive table property?
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2016 12:12:59 GMT
Has table got data in it?

Can you create a new table WITHOUT serialization.null.format and
INSERT/SELECT from old to new, drop old and rename new to old.

If the data is already there then the setting will apply to new rows only.
That may be acceptable.
