> When I create a hive table with table name start with underscore, I am able 
> to create successfully. The command that I am using is as the following:
> *CREATE TABLE `_testtable` AS SELECT * FROM `dimdate`;*
> Once created, I issue a command (as following) to query all records from that 
> table.
> *SELECT * FROM `_testtable`;*
> However, I got the error as the following:
> *Failed with exception 
> java.io.IOException:org.apache.hadoop.mapred.InvalidInputException: Input 
> path does not exist: hdfs://sandbox:8020/apps/hive/warehouse/_testtable*
> When I run the hdfs command to list the file in directory 
> */apps/hive/warehouse/_testtable*, I am able to get list of files in that 
> directory.
