FAQ
I have a table which has a partition that I load data into with:
LOAD DATA INPATH 'filepath' INTO TABLE summary PARTITION('..');

However, this moves the file addressed by /filepath/ into the table or
partition. I
found out from the mailing list that I can get around this by doing:

CREATE EXTERTAL TABLE mytable (...) ... LOCATION "hdfs://.../"

But this doesn't allow me to specify a partition. Is there some way I
can call
LOAD DATA and have Hive not move the file its loading?

thanks
