database function

SQLScript function in the SAP HANA database. Database functions must have a return value defined using RETURN. They can be table functions with a tabular return value or scalar functions with a scalar return value. Unlike database procedures, database functions can be called only directly in reading positions of statements and not using CALL. Database functions can be managed as AMDP functions in the ABAP Managed Database Procedures (AMDP).
