SQL problem in HANA Studio CalculationView

Dear all,

I'm working on a simple SQL-statement in HANA studio for merging two tables. I'm using a SQL-script Calculation View and want to combine these tables. The structure of the two tables is the following:

Table A: ChangeDocument

ChangeDate DocumentNumber ObjectValue 2013-11-14 1123057768 OR006640028785 2014-12-11 1123057769 OR006640026776


... ...

Table B: ChangeLog

DocumentNumber ObjectValue OldValue NewValue 1123057768 OR006640028785 2014-01-02 2014-01-24 1123057769 OR006640026776 2014-02-11 2014-02-01 ... ... ... ...

I wrote the following SQL-Statement:

var_out = SELECT A.ChangeDate AS "ChangeDate", A.DocumentNo AS "DocumentNo", B.DocumentNo,

B.ObjectValue AS "ObjectValue", B.OldValue AS "OldValue", B.NewValue AS "NewValue"

FROM ChangeDocument AS A LEFT JOIN ChangeLog AS B

ON A.DocumentNo=B.DocumentNo

GROUP BY DocumentNo;

Unfortunately, I receive the following error, when I'm trying the excute the statement:

Deploy Calculation View: SQL: transaction rolled back by an internal error: invalid column name: A.DOCUMENTNO

I really appreciate your help.

    Column names are case sensitive in HANA, if you use double quotes it forces the case, if you don't use them HANA converts identifiers into upper case.

    So to fix your problem, put double quotes around the column names.

      Sorry, the columns are named correctly (DocumentNo). I made a mistake for the column names in the problem description.

      After putting the column names in quotes, I received the problem that "DocumenNo was definied ambiguously". I had to modify the SQL like the following in order to make it work:

      var_out = SELECT A."ChangeDate" AS "ChangeDate", B."ObjectValue" AS "ObjectValue",

      A."DocumentNo" AS "DocumentNo", B."OldValue" AS "OldValue", B."NewValue" AS "NewValue"

      FROM ChangeDocument AS A LEFT JOIN ChangeLog AS B

      ON A."DocumentNo"=B."DocumentNo"

      GROUP BY A."DocumentNo", A."ChangeDate", B."ObjectValue", B."OldValue", B."NewValue";
