Re: how to load .zip files to hive tables

Master Guru
ZIP and other multi-file archives such as TAR, RAR, etc. are not recognized
by the default toolset in Hive.

Your best approach here is to ensure that the unarchiving step occurs
before the underlying files are loaded to HDFS, such as by the loader
script/software. You can then build a table upon the raw files and begin
your processing.
