Polybase - Give the ability to specify a file name when outputting external tables and consolidate into a single file
Creating an external table will result in multiple files being generated in blob storage. It would be great if the multiple files could be consolidated into a single file and be able to configure the file name.
There are multiple files that contain 0 bytes. It would be better to have a single file and be able to specify the file name.
This would help with idempotency to delete the file if I wanted to re-create the external table.
Thank you for your request! This item is on our backlog and under review. We will update the item when the status changes.
