      Description

      The Vertica bulk loader always fails with a Column type not supported error message. I have tested columns with types int,smallint, bigint, binary, char, varchar, long varchar and they all failed with a similar message. Writing the data to a file and then using a Vertica copy command to bulk load works for the same column types.
