Create Cumulative figure in HANA Graphical Calculation View

Hi All,

This is a document how you can create a cumulative calculation using HANA Graphical Calculation View. It is one of the easy example, but you can extend it to any complex scenario.

To Get Free HANA Clout system you can follow Free SAP HANA Server Access in Cloud – YouTube here.

I am creating a Simple file like this and our aim is to create the cumulative column as show bellow.


Annual Sales(USD)

Cumulative Sum Sales













Step 1:

Create a CSV file mention above. The file is already attached in this portal.

Step 2:

Consume the CSV file in HANA and create a Table (Table Name: Zt_Sales_001).

Step 3:

Create a HANA Model / Calculation View name CA_DATA_ CUMULATIVE_001

Step 4:

Take a projection and consume the table you have created.

Step 5:

Create a DUMMY filed with a constant value like ‘1’ (As created in the system)

Step 6:

Then use a Rank Functionality to get the sequence number of the data.

Step 7:

Divided the flow into 2 different projections, and again join with DUMMY field. You will get M*N number of field.

Step 8:

Add 2 calculative column create with following logic. One is Equal to sequence and other is Greater than Equally of sequence. Please have the logic.

Step 9:

Put a filter with Value ‘Y’ on top of the Sequence Column.

Step 10:

Put an Aggregation node on top of Projection node (which has the Greater than Equally of sequence filter). Then Do the aggregation on top of total sales column.

Step 11:

Now Put a Join node and join Projection and aggression node and join on Product field.

Step 12:

Execute the field and see the output.

Please Let me know if you finding any issue here.
