Re: sas-hadoop query

Anything that is set inside an EXECUTE block will be target DBMS dependent. So you should go to an Impala forum for such details.

Further more, using EXECUTE will not return anything to the client SAS session, so I assume a SELECT * FROM CONNECTION TO... construct fits your need better.

 

Another option is to issue a libname instead, and then you can use SAS to list the available tables.

Search support.sas.com for "PROC SQL DICTIONARY TABLES", or query the generic SASHELP.VTABLE system view.

Re: sas-hadoop query

It's up to you where you want to store the result. What is your next step?
You could store it in work if you it's intermediate use and you avoid assigning another library.
