Table columns not visible while using in data foundation of an attribute view

Hello All,

Trust you all are doing good and healthy!!

In this blog post I have explained the steps for enabling the table columns in Attribute View/Analytic View. In some of the previous HANA Studio versions it has been noticed that while creating Attribute views in Modeler perspective, table columns are not visible.

Select the Eclipse Workspace

3) Download the SAP HANA Tools. Open HANA Studio navigate to Help>Install New Software

4) Enter the URL in the section Work with:

5) Click Next and follow the instructions to complete the installation. Restart HANA studio when installation of software is completed.
