Re: Changing the schema before Storing
The STORE command doesn't take the AS clause, that's to define the schema
at LOAD time. When storing, just prepare your relation with the the desired
schema and then STORE it without the AS.

You can do all the transformations you need to before the STORE and Pig
will combine them all into as few logical processing steps as possible, so
no need to worry about specifying many transformation statements.
