got the above error while select the records from hive table.

Hey @Sundar Lakshmanan!
Could you share with us the following output?

describe formatted <table_name>;

Usually, this happens to mismatched types or some data overflowing the datatype.
Are you able to do a simple query?

select * from <table_name> limit 10;

Hope this helps!
