The article describe how to fletch cells values from SAP HANA tables, when colums are in RAW format
It is possible that sometimes the columns in the SAP HANA tables contain data in RAW format. When using Unified Functional Testing (UFT) to automate such tables, those values cannot be accessed properly by UFT, because UFT will see the data in the cell as Array of Bytes.

“Select Cast ( COLUMNAME as Varchar(100) ) from TABLENAME where cond...”
-COLUMNAME - should be replaced by the name of the Column that is in RAW format
-TABLENAME- should be replaced by the name of the Table that has the column in RAW format
By using Cast method you actually convert the values in readable formats. More details can be found here:
