Populate a new column in Hive

Populate a new column in Hive

New Contributor

I am using Hadoop 2.5.0-cdh5.3.2


I have an external table in hive which gets loaded daily and now it contains data for around 90 days.

I want to add a new column to this table (record_insert_date), which should get the date on which a particular record was inserted.


Can anyone please help.
