I do have a lot of ABAP tables which we need to create in hdbcds, but I couldn't find a converter in our ABAP workbench or somewhere else.

I don't want create all of them individually by hand. Is there a better way? (also a solution by csv would be fine)

I found this github project by Thomas Jung, but I'm not sure if this could solve my problem.

Thanks for your help!

Are you ABAP tables already running on a HANA system? If so my above table converter will help. It will read the tables from the SQL Catalog and generate an HDBCDS representation of them. The other option you might look into is PowerDesigner: http://go.sap.com/product/data-mgmt/powerdesigner-data-modeling-tools.html PowerDesign has schema reverse engineering and CDS generation capabilities in the later releases.

"Are you ABAP tables already running on a HANA system?"

Not yet, but hopefully next year. But this could be to late for us.

"PowerDesigner"

I'll check for it and try to find out, if we do have this program also in our licence portfolio.

Was surprised that I couldn't find an open source converter, because I thought this CDS syntax is a common language, and not only SAP specific.
