This Information Schema view enables you to retrieve the history of data loaded into tables using the COPY INTO <table> command within the last 14 days. The view displays one row for each file loaded.

Note

This view does not return the history of data loaded using Snowpipe. For this historical information, query the COPY_HISTORY table function instead.

## Columns¶

Column Name

Data Type

Description

SCHEMA_NAME

TEXT

Schema of target table

FILE_NAME

TEXT

Name of source file

TABLE_NAME

TEXT

Name of target table

TIMESTAMP_LTZ

Timestamp of the load record

STATUS

TEXT

Status: LOADED, LOAD FAILED, or PARTIALLY LOADED

ROW_COUNT

NUMBER

Number of rows loaded from the source file

ROW_PARSED

NUMBER

Number of rows parsed from the source file

FIRST_ERROR_MESSAGE

TEXT

First error of the source file

FIRST_ERROR_LINE_NUMBER

NUMBER

Line number of the first error

FIRST_ERROR_CHARACTER_POSITION

NUMBER

Position of the first error character

FIRST_ERROR_COL_NAME

TEXT

Column name of the first error

ERROR_COUNT

NUMBER

Number of error rows in the source file

ERROR_LIMIT

NUMBER

If the number of errors reaches this limit, then abort

## Usage Notes¶

• The historical data for COPY INTO commands is removed from the view when a table is dropped.

• The view only includes COPY INTO commands that executed to completion, with or without errors. No record is added if the transaction is rolled back, for example, or if the ON_ERROR = ABORT_STATEMENT copy option is included in the COPY INTO <table> statement and a detected error in a data file aborts the load operation.

• This view returns an upper limit of 10,000 rows. To avoid this limitation, use the LOAD_HISTORY view (Account Usage), COPY_HISTORY function (Information Schema), or the COPY_HISTORY view (Account Usage).

• When including a WHERE clause that references the LAST_LOAD_TIME column, you can specify any day of the week. For example, April 1, 2016 was a Friday; however, specifying Sunday instead does not affect the query results:

WHERE last_load_time > 'Sun, 01 Apr 2016 16:00:00 -0800'


## Examples¶

Retrieve the history of data loaded into the MYDB.PUBLIC.MYTABLE table since April 1, 2016, assuming that April 1 occurred within the previous 14 days:

USE DATABASE mydb;

SELECT * FROM information_schema.load_history
WHERE schema_name=current_schema() AND
table_name='MYTABLE' AND
last_load_time > 'Fri, 01 Apr 2016 16:00:00 -0800';


Retrieve records for the 10 most recent COPY INTO commands executed against the MYDB database:

USE DATABASE mydb;

SELECT * FROM information_schema.load_history
ORDER BY last_load_time DESC
LIMIT 10;
