      Description

      When adding a partition using a fully qualified table name I get the following error, works fine if I use database and then re-issue the query with a non-qualified table name. Other queries such as select do work with fully qualified table names so should make this allow qualified table names for convenience and consistency.

      hive> alter table myDB.myTable add partition (log_date='xxxx-xx-xx');
