Two external tables point to same hdfs location

Hi

 

Is it possible to have two external tables point to the same hdfs location?

 

Thanks

Shannon

Yes. It may cause issues depending on how you are using it when ingestion data into it. What are you trying to do? I wonder if a Hive view would be better then a separate table.
