Reading SAP Data - Tables written to a flat file

I'm new to Hadoop.

I'm writing a file out of SAP using the ABAP statement "FOR OUTPUT IN LEGACY TEXT MODE" and outputing all the fields of the table VBAK (using the structure VBAK) and these are fixed length fields. I have uploaded this file into HDFS.

How do I read this file in PIG or HIVE specifying fixed length fields and also how can I create a table schema?

Thanks.
