[Rust][DataFusion] Slightly confusing error message when unsupported type is provided to CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

      Description

      When I make a typo in the CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE command, I get an error message that doesn't doesn't tell me the valid values of STORED AS:

      As a user, I would like the software to guide me to the correct resolution and tell me what the supported formats are.

      For example:

      CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE repro
      STORED AS ARROW
      LOCATION 'repro.arrow';
      

      results in:

      > CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE repro
      STORED AS ARROW
      LOCATION 'repro.arrow';
      
      ParserError(ParserError("Expected fileformat, found: ARROW"))
      

      Ideally the error should say that the valid choices are PARQUET, CSV, or DSJSON
