    Hi Hari haran,

    Bacic list is the list which is genearted at first by your ABAP program. The secondary lists will be genarted by further navigation or user slection from the basic list.

    Say if u enter a range a materials in the selection screen and display the the material numbers and some other details in the report. That will be basic list.

    Now if you double click the material number and if it displays say the material description , this list is called secondary list.

    This can be done in AT LINE-selection event.

    There can be only 1 basic list .

    Hi,

    In the R/3 System, you implement interactive reporting by:

    Creating ABAP report programs

    ABAP report programs generate <b>basic lists</b> where users can select lines, or trigger commands with menu options, function keys, or pushbuttons, in order to display further information in one or more <b>secondary lists</b>.

    Submitting other ABAP report programs

    Calling transactions

    Calling screens

    check this...

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2004/helpdata/en/d2/cb41a0455611d189710000e8322d00/frameset.htm

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2004/helpdata/en/d2/cb408a455611d189710000e8322d00/frameset.htm

    for example:-

    REPORT demo_list_interactive_1.
    
    START-OF-SELECTION.
      WRITE: 'Basic List, SY-LSIND =', sy-lsind.
    
    AT LINE-SELECTION.
      WRITE: 'Secondary List, SY-LSIND =', sy-lsind.

    When you run the program, the basic list appears. The GUI status automatically permits the function Choose (F2). When you choose a list line, the system triggers the AT LINE-SELECTION event, and the first detail list overlays the basic list. This list has no standard page header. It also inherits the GUI status of the basic list. By choosing Choose, the user can now create up to 19 of these lists. Trying to produce more than 19 lists results in a runtime error. Using Back , the user can return to previous lists.

    hope this helps you..

    regards,

    venu.

    Basic list would be the primary(first) list generated by a report program. The secondary list is the list generated by drilling down on an object on the primary list.

      When you run the program, the basic list appears with the standard list status.

      secondary list means
