How to filter rows based on values of row and column having same name?


I have table with dynamic generated column names . These column of the table is system dependent . In one column , corresponding dynamic column

name is maintained as value . This may be confusing!

In the below table , column PARAMETERS has values which is same as other columns name i.e MATNR_LO,SERNR_LO,SERNR_HI,DATE_LO.

I have to filter column based on values corresponding to contents of parameters . Since the column name is not fixed , I can not use static sql to filter rows, is their any other way to map column name with the contents of column . Here I want to check content of Parameters and compare the value associated with the these parameters with the column like DATE_LO,DATE_HI, MATNR_LO etc.

Please suggest any option!!

    Not sure I totally get what the goal here is, but you should be able to get what you want by querying system view TABLE_COLUMNS

    Filter on the schema and table name, and then you can join PARAMETERS from your source table to COLUMN_NAME from TABLE_COLUMNS.

      Hi Micha - certainly true, but keep in mind results from dynamic SQL cannot be returned as a result set bound to an output variable from a stored procedure (i.e. like scripted CalcViews). The impact is that BI clients cannot consume such procedures like normal HANA information models.
