Creating SQL Table using Spark

acc_1=spark.sql(“create table test_spark as select columns, column,columnc from table where to_date(ac_opn_dt) < ‘2012-07-01’ )”)

# Given pandas dataframe,  return a spark’s dataframe.
def pandas_to_spark(pandas_df):
columns = list(pandas_df.columns)
types = list(pandas_df.dtypes)
struct_list = []
for column, typo in zip(columns, types):
struct_list.append(define_structure(column, typo))
p_schema = StructType(struct_list)
return sqlContext.createDataFrame(pandas_df, p_schema)
