Moderate 4093 Import of a file from the S3 file explorer fails because invalid data types are set for the columns in the file. Set all column data types as VARCHAR and re-import the file.
Moderate 3788 The Abort feature in Redshift Workbench does not terminate a query that is currently running. Use the SQL at to find the process ID of the running query and cancel it.
Minor 4090 If you begin a download using an explorer (such as SFTP or HDFS) and abort the download, a small portion of the file remains on your target system. Manually delete the file on your target system.
Minor 7285 During a SELECT statement, dates in the format “01-01-01” cause the error “One of the identified items was in an invalid format.” Use a WHERE clause to eliminate invalid rows or cast the date as VARCHAR.
Minor 3711 When the field type is Date, the year 0 (for example, 0000-01-01) causes an error “Year, Month, and Day parameters describe an un-representable DateTime.” Either cast the date as a VARCHAR or do not use the year 0.
