Query Athena from s3 database - remove metadata/corrupted data

Hello, I was following along with the tutorials for connecting Tableau to Amazon Athena and got hung up when running the query and returning the expected result. I downloaded the student-db.csv from and uploaded the csv to a S3 bucket that I created. I can create the database within Athena however when I create a table either with the bulk add or directly from the query editor and preview with a query the data gets corrupted. and includes unexpected characters and unexpected/unnecessary punctuations and sometimes all the data is aggregated into a single column and also contains metadata such as "1 ?20220830_185102_00048_tnqre"0 2 ?hive" 3 Query Plan* 4 Query Plan2?varchar8 @H?P?". Also with my Athena - Tableau connected receiving the same issues when I preview the table that was created with Athena and stored in my bucket. ``` CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE IF NOT EXISTS student( `school` string, `country` string, `gender` string, `age` string, `studytime` int, `failures` int, `preschool` string, `higher` string, `remotestudy` string, `health` string) ROW FORMAT DELIMITED FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' STORED AS INPUTFORMAT 'org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TextInputFormat' OUTPUTFORMAT '' LOCATION 's3://jj2-test-bucket/' TBLPROPERTIES ( 'has_encrypted_data'='false', 'skip.header.line.count'='1', 'transient_lastDdlTime'='1595149168') ``` ``` SELECT * FROM "studentdb"."student" limit 10; ``` ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMVPFHEHtDTo2aPRoGcWSBBg)
