In this blog ,  I am going to explain creation of Calculation view ( Graphical).

SAP HANA Model for COPA Scenario

Analytic View : ( Part 2)

Calculation View Intro:

Calculation views are composite views used on top of analytic and attribute views.

Calculation views combine different fact tables

Calculation views are defined as either graphical views or scripted views depending on how they are created

Graphical views can be modeled using the graphical modeling features of the SAP HANA Modeler

Scripted views are created as sequences of SQL statements.

Typically used when the business use case requires advanced logic that is not covered in the previous types of information views

For example, calculation views can have layers of calculation logic, can include measures sourced from multiple source tables, can include advanced SQL logic, and so on

The data foundation of the calculation view can include any combination of tables, column views, attribute views and analytic views.

You can create joins, unions, projections, and aggregation levels on the sources.

Creation of Calculation View

  1. Create a new Calculation View.


  2. Name calculation view CVG_COPA_UNION,

      Specify Graphical for the type of the Calculation View.

      Click Next.


  3. Will be reading from existing Anal analytic views you do not have to select any tables. Select the analytic view both

     Click Next.


4. As a result the Graphical Calculation View editor will open.


5. From the Tools Palette select 2 Projection graphical nodes one for each Analytical View.

    Select Union as well.


6. With the mouse pointer over each graphical node and draw a connection line between the nodes.


7. Click on each Projection node and rename each to Projection_A and Projection_P.


8. Add a new Calculated Column called KPLIKZ for Projection_A



9.  Add a new Calculated Column called KPLIKZ for Projection_P



10.  Select the Projection P node, within the details view select all the fields > Right Click > Add to Output.

       Repeat the same step for projection A node.


11. Proceed to select and work with the Union node. Within the details of the Union ,select all the fields from the Projection_A node > Right Click > Add to Target, Repeat the same for Projection P.


12. Click on the Output Node in the main diagram. Within the Details view pane select each field > Right Click > ‘And the field as a Attribute’ or as Measure according to the following.


13. Save & Validate then  Activate View, Click Data Preview to see the output of the view

Click Distinct Values to see the distinct values , as result you will see below screen.


14.Click Analysis to see the output of the view in the graphical representation.

    Yes Joseph ,

    you can model the solution..

    Currently is no hierarchy support similar to NetWeaver or BW in HANA but you can model the solution from the scratch.

    Thanks Mahesh,

    I am new to SAP and HANA Studio; can you please guide me on how to build standard cost center/profit center hierarchy in HANA Studio database using SETLEAF, SETNODE AND SETHEADER? I will need to implement this in attribute view and connect it to GLPCA for GR55 profit and Loss statement report. Below is my attribute view for the profit center/Cost center hierarchy. The issue with this model is that I can only move two levels down the hierarchy.

    Dim_Profit_Center_Hierarchy using inner join to join Setleaf, setnode and setheader using setnode.setname
