Processing a single table in HANA gives strange results

Nice to meet you all.

Use case:

I have a single table

E1 Sam Physics E2 E2 Ram Chemistry E3 E3 San Maths E2 E4 Kumar Biology E2 E5 Ravi Tamil E2 E6 Guru English E7 Sankar Hindi E2 E8 Mani Computer E1 E9 Selva Electronics E4 E10 Ramesh Electrical

The Supervisor is also an employee. Hence the Supervisor column has the EmpId of the Supervisor.

I need to find the EmpName Vs SupervisorName details

Following steps I did,

Step 1:

Created an attribute view, where I added the above table twice to get the SupervisorId and SupervisorName. The results are expected

Step 2:

Created an analytic view. Joined the above attribute view and the table.

But the actual result is wrong. For example, the supervisor name for E2 is Ram as per step 1 and table, but the result shows it as Kumar. None of the SupervisorId and SuperVisorName matches.

Please advice.

    Hi Guru,

    You should have posted this question in Inmemory HANA group not HANA use cases group.

    There are lot of ways to resolve your issue. The procedure I used is as below.

    1) created calculated view with Dimension type instead of Cube

    2) Created 3 projections using Employee table

    Projection 3 has filter as below

    3) Then create the flow as below

    Join Proj 1 and Proj 2 for getting empid etc to supervisorid and Supervisor Name

    union the above output to Proj 3 to get all records. As proj 3 has records where supervisorid is blank as this records will be missed in inner join.



    Final Projection below semantics

    Semantics - Rename the below highlighted ones

    4) Final Output

    Experts please let me know if this procedure is not recommended.

    You can also keep the filters on Proj 1 and Proj 2 with supervisor <> blank.

    Guru try this and let me know if you face any difficulty.

    Close this thread if your issue resolved.

    Hi Guru,

    if you notice step1 results,

    Employee "E2" records are getting duplicated.

    Because of this Analytic View results are wrong.

    We can get this results simply by using SQL scripts.

    using this SQL , You can create SQL view and would use SQL view in Calculation Views.

    Else You can create scripted calculation view.

    Select A.EmpID, A.EmpName, A.EmptDept, A.Supervisior, B.EmpName


    Left Outer Join


    On A.Supervisior = B.EmpId
