import SAP data using Sqoop Error


import SAP data using Sqoop Error

New Contributor

Hello All, please i am trying to move data from sqoop into HDFS using sqoop. The database is available in the ZSLT_SHE schema, and the name of the table i am trying to import is ADR6. i will attach a screenshot.

I am using this command to import the table but running into an error.

sqoop import --connect 'jdbc:sap://x.x.x.x:xxxxx/?database=HXE&user=xxxxxxx&password=xxxxxx' --table ZSLT_SH20.ADR20 --driver --hive-import --hive-overwrite --split-by CLIENT -m 1

I get an error that says

at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.YarnChild.main( Caused by: SAP DBTech JDBC: [257]: sql syntax error: incorrect syntax near ".": line 1 col 205 (at pos 205)

@Abifoluwa Oni

Looks like the "--table ZSLT_SH20.ADR20" might be causing the issue here as it has Special characters.

Can you please try using a escape character for DOT there something like described in
