HIVE-6384 Errors with Spark and Parquet

Manoj Pandey troubleshoots an issue:

But I was getting following error:

warning: there was one feature warning; re-run with -feature for details
java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Parquet does not support decimal. See HIVE-6384

As per the above error it relates to some Hive version conflict, so I tried checking the Hive version by running below command and found that it is pointing to an old version (0.13.0). This version of Hive metastore did not support the BINARY datatypes for parquet formatted files.

Read on to see how Manoj was able to fix the problem in Azure Databricks.
