Re: problem with delimiters (control A)
Hi Jack 

Since u already have your data with columns separated by CtrlA then u need to define the HIVE table as follows 
(by default Hive will assume CtrlA as column delimiter)

create table if not exists my_test(
    userid          BIGINT,
    movieId         BIGINT,
    comment         STRING

Hi Jack,

could it be that your source file does not use \001 as delimiter but the character sequence "^A"? I get this feeling when looking at your cat printout and also when you say you can do a search and replace. If I do a print out of a file with the same delimiter I get the following


These are actually three columns but you cannot see the ^A because it is not a printable character. Check your file in a hex editor or something to verify that you have the correct delimiter.
