Impala ODBC engine Error

Creating a table with SAS and Cloudera Impala ODBC engine I can't import data with many columns (more than 1080). The table is created but the data is not written and the following error is generated:

ERROR: CLI execute error: [Cloudera][ImpalaODBC] (110) Error while executing a query in Impala: [HY000] : AnalysisException: Syntax error in line 1: ...,xxx`) VALUES ( ? , ? , ? , ? , ? , ? , ? , ... ^ Encountered: Unexpected character Expected: CASE, CAST, DEFAULT, EXISTS, FALSE, IF, INTERVAL, NOT, NULL, TRUNCATE, TRUE, IDENTIFIER

 

I've tried a Create table as select from an existing table in sas (work) or impala. Also I've tried the same create table as select with only one row and give me the same error. The ODBC driver used is the Cloudera Impala ODBC driver 2.5.32 and run on Linux CentOs.

The limit is 1080 columns... after there's the error!

 

Thank you

Re: Impala ODBC engine Error

I've solved with bulkload=yes:

 

data Impala.table (bulkload=yes);
set work.table;
run;

 

or


proc sql;
create table Impala.table(bulkload=yes) as
select * from work.table;

quit;

Re: Impala ODBC engine Error

I suggest you open a track with SAS Tech Support if you haven't already done so. I had a quick look in the SAS notes on this but most problems reported were to do with out-of-date ODBC drivers - yours appears to be more recent than those causing problems.
