@Adithya Sajjanam,

If the table name, row key, column family and column name are same it will update the data, else it will create a new record.

Thanks,

Aditya

@Aditya Sirna update in the sense the data will be appended to the existing rows or the whole thing will be overwritten?

@Adithya Sajjanam,

It will overwrite the data. It will not append the data
