>                 Key: DRILL-3178
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-3178
>             Project: Apache Drill
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Storage - Text & CSV
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
>         Environment: Ubuntu Trusty 14.04.2 LTS
>            Reporter: Neal McBurnett
>            Assignee: F Méthot
>             Fix For: Future
>
>
> When reading a csv file which contains newlines within quoted strings, e.g. 
> via
>     select * from dfs.`/tmp/q.csv`;
> Drill 1.0 says:
>     Error: SYSTEM ERROR: com.univocity.parsers.common.TextParsingException:  
> Error processing input: Cannot use newline character within quoted string
> But many tools produce csv files with newlines in quoted strings.  Drill 
> should be able to handle them.
> Workaround: the csvquote program (https://github.com/dbro/csvquote) can 
> encode embedded commas and newlines, and even decode them later if desired.
