    What syntax you are using for COPY from HDFS and write the reject data to a table?

    are you using
    => COPY <table_name> SOURCE-> Hdfs(url=....) rejected data as table <table_name>_rejects;
    Did you check if the data is also written in the below folder?
    Are you able to see the rejected data in the files as per the below?


    Viewing Rejected Rows and Exceptions COPY statements that use the HP Vertica Connector for HDFS use the same method for recording rejections and exceptions as other COPY statements. Rejected rows and exceptions are saved to log files. These log files are stored by default in the CopyErrorLogs subdirectory in the database's catalog directory.
