COEP timestamp conversion in HANA

Former Member

Hi,

I am replicating COEP table in HANA. I need to create an additional column for the table which gives the posting date. COEP table has TIMESTAMP column, however the data is stored in DEC 16 format.

I was able to find an ABAP function module / logic to covert it into SQL date.

Please let me know if this can be done in native HANA.

Thanks,

Aamod.

Hi Aamod,

to get the 'DD.MM.YYYY' format below is the script.

SELECT TO_CHAR(TO_DATE(:COEP_FIELD), 'DD.MM.YYYY') INTO IS_VALID FROM dummy ;

change the format according to your requirement.

This is not the correct answer - the data format in the TIMESTMP column is not "DD.MM.YYYY".

Hi Lars,

Thanks for mentioning it before I could reply to the post, that the timestamp in COEP is little more complex than DD.MM.YYYY.

Looking at the solution in the post I tried to do the same in SQL.

select top 1000 GJAHR,PERIO,ADD_DAYS (TO_DATE ('1990-01-01', 'YYYY-MM-DD'),cast((cast(timestmp/10000 as int)+86400)/86400 as int ) ) "date" from "SAPECC"."COEP"

I also added a generated column to COEP table as:

alter table "SAPECC"."COEP" add ("_DATE" DATE GENERATED ALWAYS as ADD_DAYS (TO_DATE ('1990-01-01', 'YYYY-MM-DD'),((TIMESTMP/10000)+86400)/86400 ))

However the SQL does not take care of converting from UTC to local timezone as is done in the ABAP function module.

I would appreciate if you can give some inputs.

Thanks,

Aamod.

Hi Lars,

Please let me know if there is a way to convert the COEP timestamp in HANA table generated column.

Thanks,
