Adam Szita commented on PIG-4901:
---------------------------------

By default MultiStorage is capable to do multi-level storage as your example 
shows.
I attached a patch to upgrade MultiStorage in piggybank to support any number 
of levels.

Once it goes in you can use it as:
{code}
register '../contrib/piggybank/java/piggybank.jar';
A = LOAD 'multiStorage.txt' USING PigStorage() AS (DateString:chararray, 
Name:chararray, Col3:chararray, Col4:chararray);
B = foreach A generate ToDate(DateString) AS Date, DateString, Name, Col3, Col4;
C = foreach B generate 
CONCAT((chararray)(GetYear(Date)),CONCAT('-',(chararray)(GetMonth(Date)))) AS 
Month, DateString, Name, Col3, Col4;
STORE C into 'multiOut' USING 
org.apache.pig.piggybank.storage.MultiStorage('multiOut','2,0', 'none', '\\t');
{code}

There is also on option to skip writing values of key columns.
[~daijy] can you please take a look at the patch?
