    Hello Chandan,

    Although not well described the documentation mentions that the SQL function usage on Expression Editor is limited:

    Create Calculated Columns - SAP HANA Developer Guide for SAP HANA Studio - SAP Library:


    You can also create an expression by dragging and dropping the expression elements, operators and functions from the menus to the expression editor.

    For expression in SQL language, modeler supports only a limited list of SQL functions.


    Functions add_workadays and workdays_between are within the not implemented list.

    Chandan I am having the same problem as you, with the formula

    "workdays_between". I add the neccesary elements in the formula and after the syntax check , the error "...cannot be converted to CS Expression". this is driving me nuts.

    If I use another formula it work. but obviously I need this one.

    This is just so you know not the only one having this problem. sorry I cannot give you the solution for the time being.
