Sorry for the blank message earlier. My reading of the use of Hive queries is that you would need to use the `datediff` function. I further suspect you need to define a variable name to which then apply your limits. I also read that hive dates are actually strings types represented as POSIX style character values and might need a to_date funciton. This is all guesswork since I don't have a hive cluster to run this against:
So perhaps something like one of these:
try1 <- dbGetQuery(hivecon,"select date1, date2, datediff(TO_DATE(date1),TO_DATE(date2)) as d12diff from dateTable where d12diff GT 1000 limit 10")
try2 <- dbGetQuery(hivecon,"select date1, date2, datediff(dat1,date2) as d12diff from dateTable where d12diff GT 1000 limit 10")
Obviously these are just guesses.
