  • Hi Carine,

    the link for “Create your first ABAP CDS view” is pointing to same link used for “New Data Modeling Features”, is it correct?

  • Hi Carine,

    This is amazing!  Thank you for such a thorough and organized collection of knowledge sources.

    Is there an ABAP CDS home page?  If not, this should be the basis for it.  Well done!

    Best regards,
