loading fixed width file format into Impala

I'm trying to find out how to load a fixed width txt file from HDFS into an Impala table.  I've seen examples of loading CSV file formats that have a delimiter but am not able to find any examples of how to load a fixed width file into Impala.  I have seen examples of how to do this in Hive but not Impala.  I've read that Impala supports Fixed Width file formats but haven't seen any examples on how to do this.

Hive & Impala works together, if you have example for how to load into Hive just load into hive. 

 

apply "Invalidate metadata" command and use hive table from Impala
