This hint bypasses the process to convert raw objects to the Compass query format before executing the query. This hint is useful to verify the query syntax or to view data that has already been converted.

Note: Do not use this hint to retrieve a full result set, because the results do not include any new data loaded to the Data Lake.

The skipReformatting hint does not include parameters. The hint skips the data conversion process for all data objects referenced in the query.
