SAP HANA Table Types

In this article we will learn about Table Type in SAP HANA.
Introduction to Table Type:

A table type is
    • Similar to a database table but do not have an instance
    • Used to define parameters for a procedure that represent tabular results.
In HANA, with the help of SQLScript, we can create a Table Type.

How to Create a Table Type:

A table type is created using statement CREATE TYPE and can be deleted using statement DROP TYPE.

CREATE TYPE [schema.]name AS TABLE
          (name1 type1 [, name2 type2,...])

DROP TYPE [schema.]name [CASCADE]


    1. Open HANA studio and run the below SQL statement to create a table type.
      Replace SCHEMA_NAME with your schema.

                  SALES_AMOUNT DECIMAL,
                  NET_AMOUNT DECIMAL,
                  PRODUCT_NAME NVARCHAR(20),
                  REGION_NAME NVARCHAR(20),
                  SUB_REGION_NAME NVARCHAR(20)

    2. After executing the statement you can go to THE schema and find the table type under Procedures -> Table Types section.

    Can you guide me on how to invoke procedure from Java, which accepts a table type input?
    Many thanks in advance,

    When we want to change table type, how to change.
    For ex: we want to add one more filed in Table type or change data type for existing field.
    Kindly let me know how to do either Graphical or SQL ways.
