displaying ALV list with field width of 1000 chars in multi-line same field



In ALV list output, among 20 fields i have one field defined in DD as 1000 characters (concatenated string).

Since line-size is limited to 1023 characters, and thereafter ALV is to wide for display (am i right?), i would like to break 1000 chars in let's say 4x250 chars to be shown one under another to cover whole possible contents of 1000 char field.

Since other columns take arround 600-700 chracters, my long field is cut on aprox. 250 chars folowed by '...',

and the rest of the string is not shown.

Customer wants to export the list to Excel so that this field will remain in one field in Excel table.

How can this be done, any suggestions, alternatives???

Thank you in advance... Cheers...
