I am querying some json and parquet data that has dots in the name. Not all
the data I may be querying will come from Drill, thus dot is a valid
character... when I go to initially explore my data, Drill throws the error
below when I run a select * query.
I understand the error, and I can create a view, selecting each column out
and renaming it for easier select * in the future. However, as a user, if
I get a new data set, this could (unless I am informed of another way here)
force me to leave drill to explore my data.
I get how using periods as field qualifiers causes issues... but if we had
had a way to read a file to get the schema, to either produce the all the
fields in a select query for easy view creation or a way to query with
periods in the name that would be awesome! It would keep users IN drill
instead of going elsewhere to explore their data.
I am open to ideas!
