RE: Loading files from a directory
Hi Mayank,

Hive load can go only one directory deep.  You cannot load directory of directory of files.

I am trying to create an external table in hive, by referring to a directory in hadoop containing multiple files of the same type inside the directory.
But hive gives an error, that the path specified is not a filename.
Is there a way to load all the files present inside a directory into one hive table?
