Thanks Matt.I have set the two configs in my sparkConfig as belowval spark = SparkSession.builder().appName("QuickstartSQL").config("spark.sql.extensions", "io.delta.sql.DeltaSparkSessionExtension").config("spark.sql.catalog.spark_catalog", "org.apache.spark.sql.delta.catalog.DeltaCatalog").getOrCreate()I am using a managed Spark service with Delta on Google Cloud and therefore all nodes have delta-core_2.12:0.7.0 in /usr/lib/delta/jars/I am using a managed Hive metastore version 2.3.6 which is connected to my Delta cluster as well as presto cluster. When I am using the normal scala API it works without any issuesspark.read.format("delta").load("pathtoTable").show()val deltaTable = DeltaTable.forPath("gs://jayadeep-etl-platform/first-delta-table")deltaTable.as("oldData").merge(merge_df.as("newData"),"oldData.x = newData.x").whenMatched.update(Map("y" -> col("newData.y"))).whenNotMatched.insert(Map("x" -> col("newData.x"))).execute()When I am issuing the following command it works finescala> spark.sql(s"SELECT * FROM $tableName")
res2: org.apache.spark.sql.DataFrame = [col1: int]But when I try to do .show() it returns an errorscala> spark.sql(s"SELECT * FROM $tableName").show()

Can someone suggest what can be the problem ?
