CSVInput

Describes how an uncompressed comma-separated values (CSV)-formatted input object is formatted.

Contents

AllowQuotedRecordDelimiter

FileHeaderInfo

Describes the first line of input. Valid values are:

  • NONE: First line is not a header.

  • IGNORE: First line is a header, but you can't use the header values to indicate the column in an expression. You can use column position (such as _1, _2, …) to indicate the column (SELECT s._1 FROM OBJECT s).

  • Use: First line is a header, and you can use the header value to identify a column in an expression (SELECT "name" FROM OBJECT).

Type: String

Valid Values: USE | IGNORE | NONE

Required: No

QuoteCharacter

A single character used for escaping when the field delimiter is part of the value. For example, if the value is a, b, Amazon S3 wraps this field value in quotation marks, as follows: " a , b ".
