Additional Details

Hive does not properly handle writing multi-byte characters in wide strings (WStrings). For more information, see the UnicodeĀ® character SQL INSERT issue.

If you have issues with reading or writing UnicodeĀ® characters, access the Simba Impala ODBC driver. Under Advanced Options, select the "Use SQL Unicode Types" option.
