Note: Hive will automatically detect the type of data in each column (First Name, Email, etc.) - it’s best practice to check if the auto-selected types accurately reflect the data in the columns. Click the drop-down arrow to select the column type. If there are columns in your CSV that you do not want to be imported, select the “-” as the column type.
Importing Ticketing Data
