Create Data Dictionary in Hana

Hi All,

Is there any convenient way to create a data dictionary in SAP HANA database? I guess there should be a system's table which contents column information about each table or view such as column label, data type,dimension and etc.

Any early help is highly appreciated.

Regards,

Jassy

    Anything wrong with your web search?

    Lists all the available HANA system views including those covering the information you're after.

    BTW: none of them are in the special _SYS_BI/_SYS_BIC schemas.
