Hi,

Has anyone ever succeed to load a gzipped file using the bq shell command 'load' (bq load mytable mycsvfile.gz)?

Each time I try I got this error:

Unexpected exception in load operation: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0x8b in position 390: ordinal not in
range(128)

Seems like it's a python error.

Any clue?

Thanks,

Charles

Hi Charles,

I just ran into this error last week; I've got a fix that I'm planning to push out (as part of a new version of the CLI) some time this week.

Thanks!

Thanks Craig. I'll wait for your patch then.

Hi Craig,

When do you think you'll be able to push your fix? It'd be really helping as I need to upload a couple hundred GB. If that fix is not coming soon could you recommend me an alternative solution please?

Thanks a lot,

Charles

Hi Charles,

I'm handling the update this time. There's a good chance I'll get it pushed today, but this is my first time updating the git repository and I don't know what problems I'll run in to. I'll send an announcement when it's ready!

Cheers,

Thanks a lot,
