HANA PAL Kaplan-Meier input types

The Kaplan-Meier procedure KMSURV in the PAL library requires a 4th column in the input data table described as "GROUP" that is of the type integer or varchar according to the documentation.

When using a varchar type data for this field, an error occurs with the following message:

PAL error[$ERROR_CODE$]:There is logic error in function pvalueChisqDist

When the field variables are encoded to integers, no error occurs.

Could someone replicate this result in HANA2?

    cjeromework32-pal-201709-kaplan-meier-survival-ana.txtHello Michael,

    This issue doesn’t appear in HANA 2.0. I used the attached code to do the testing.

    Best Regards

    Jerome

    Hi Michael, I am not a PAL expert, I'll seek help from my HANA colleagues here. Kind regards, Antoine
