Data Type Conversion not working - Join failing

Hi Experts,

I have 2 join 2 views in HANA Studio.

1. 1 of those views is CV , Containing Analytics View based upon SAP BW DSO (with no measure only characteristics).Here all Data Types in the Analytics views are NVARCHAR.

2. The other one is CV based upon some SAP TM Tables and as SAP TM Tables has Parent/DB Key which are VARBINARY format.

I tried doing data conversion by creating SQL Script based CV from NVARCHAR to VARBINARY using TO_NVARCHAR Function but its getting converting into 64 character and the same is still not matching.

Same way i treid for the other one from VARBINARY to NVARCHAR using TO_NVARCHAR option but it didn't do anything. Column value remain same.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Hi Kamal,

    Is this VARBINARY on SAP, the GUID 64 positions?

    We faced similar on SP7 if I remind correctly it got supported on SP8, at least I don't remember that it's an issue now that we are on rev82.

    What HANA revision you are using?

    What is the error you receive on first case?

    Regards, Fernando Da Rós

    CAST( <column> as VARBINARY) Function to converting NVARCHAR to VARBINARY

    In this <column> is NVARCHAR column.
