Calculated fields in CDS

If I have a custom Entity called Suppliers, how can I create a calculated field to represent the first letter of the supplier name? obviously, TrimLeft trims that letter, while function Left does not exist.

Re: Calculated fields in CDS

Hi @Yahya - at first glance, I dont think we have the functions necessary to support this unfortuantely - can you raise a suggestion on the ideas board and we can have a look at it for you?

Thanks,
Clay.

Re: Calculated fields in CDS

In model driven, this is given by default, i am referring to canvas (or CDS Excel add in) obviously. There are workarounds as you can imagine, thanks @CWesener.
