Embedded BI-Language Text: how/why does it work?

Our attempt to supply a Z-IOBJ with language dependent texts from a custom built HANA view fails. Hence we figured to use a BC object as a model, but cannot understand how it works.

Language dependent BC IOBJ /ERP/BUSAREA is sourced by HANA view: FCO_C_BUSINESS_AREA

As can be seen the view does NOT contain the language field SPRAS.

In the 'Maintain HANA-Assignments' of the IOBJ interface only the following two fields appear (as targets): '/ERP/BUSAREA' and '1TXTMD'.

The selectable HANA view fields (as sources) are: 'MANDT', 'GSBER' and 'GTEXT'.



NO mapping of a language field. Yet when I log in with English the text is in English and when I log on in another language the text is in that other language.

How is it possible that this works without a language field anywhere in the model???

    Ok, we don't see whether or not the TEXT JOIN is used here, but let's say it is.

    Then the SPRAS field gets evaluated against the current session language context setting.

    See here Text Joins - SAP HANA Modeling Guide for SAP HANA Web Workbench - SAP Library and SESSION_CONTEXT - SAP HANA SQL and System Views Reference - SAP Library.

    The relevant context variables are LOCALE and LOCALE_SAP (both set by the SAP Netweaver DB interface library).
