One thing that you might want to check is if the delimiter characters are part of any of the
data that are imported.   You can use --hive-drop-import-delims and --hive-delims-replacement
options (they are not hive specific even though they have hive in the name!) if that is the

Ok I'll take these notes, validate the column alignment and provide some sample data if I
see additional issues.

Thanks for the help,

It looks like Sqoop believes the format of the timestamps are incorrect. Could you please
inspect the data you are attempting to import and verify the columns are aligned and the data
is correctly formatted? I believe if you use the --verbose option, Sqoop will give more details
in its own logs and the tasks logs. Can you post the task logs back here?

Some other information that might be helpful to us is an example of the data you're trying
to export and the schema of the table you're importing to.

What is the exact command you are using and the exact error you are seeing? Also, what version
of sqoop are you using?

Hi all,

I have a table I've imported from Oracle into HDFS and now I want to export it into an Oracle
Db (import and export table schemas are identical).

My initial attempt at exporting from HDFS (using Sqoop) to Oracle failed (data types failures).
So, my question is what's the best way for me to accomplish this? My source table is a mixture
of NUMBER, VARCHAR, DATE fields. Am I better off importing into a Hive table I define and
then exporting into Oracle from there? Or do I just need to do some export formatting in my
Sqoop export statement?

Any other intel you'd need to make a recommendation?

Thanks in advance,
