Hello Omar,

The SQL code that you want to convert is actually concatenating string values with a seperator, or actually maybe it is a better term it is aggregating string values and using a seperator between each string value

Before SQL Server provided String_Agg function to concatenate string columns from different rows into a single variable, Transact-SQL programmers developing code on SQL Server was using string concatenation with For XML Path method

Since SAP HANA database already supports String_Agg function, you can replace that code block with a suitable SQLScript code

Here is a sample SQL code modified from string_agg function on HANA db

 string_agg(column_name, ', ' order by position) as columns

Output is as follows for my test table
