In this blog I’ll like to point you to a tool that has been recently released in SDN for converting SQL language from MS SQL Server to SAP HANA™.
The Query Migration Tool for Microsoft SQL Server to SAP HANA is a semi-automatic tool that helps convert most of the data-definition language (DDL) and data-manipulation language (DML).

It will help you to convert structured query language (SQL) in the Microsoft SQL Server database (using T-SQL grammar) to SQL that can be used in the SAP HANA™ database (using ANSI-SQL grammar).

After the conversion, you must check whether the converted version is correct according to your needs.

This tool supports most of the official T-SQL grammar, and some well-known and widely-used undocumented feature. For more information about the official T-SQL grammar, see the MSDN Library.

If SAP HANA does not support certain SQL, this tool will do the following:

• Find equivalents in the SAP HANA database and convert the SQL.

• Delete the SQL in the input file and display relevant comments in the output file.

• Leave the SQL in the input file as it is, for example, the WITH statement.


New features:

  • The converter supports the WITH statement.
  • There is one more default pattern in the token file. For more information, see Token File.
  • Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available for the converter.
  • There is one more API example for the 64-bit version.

If you encounter any issue when using the SQL converter, post the issue to the SAP Community Network at Please don’t post them here as this is not in a discussion format easy to follow up.


We hope this tool will help you.
