How to change width of WBS element definition in S_ALR_87100185 report?

Dear Experts,

I'm running S_ALR_87100185 report for WBS element costs of the year. However, in the report I can't get the entire definition of WBS elements. I'm attaching a picture to show.

In the report the definition comes as

-MDF2 SIEMPELKAMP PRE

But in actual master data it is:

-MDF2 SIEMPELKAMP PRES UZATMA

So S_ALR_87100185 report shows only first 20 characters and hides the rest.

Anyone knows how to change the width of the definition column of the report?

      HI Ugur,

      After executing the Report --> Select the Object --> In setting Tab Select the Characteristic display --> Select the Line -->  Object Description (long) and Make the Length as 40 Char.

      Than you can see the Complete description of the WBS Element.

      Kindly note MaX 58 Char can be display includes the WBS Coding mask and Description.

      if you faces any issue let me know,

      Thanks

    Hi Talha,

    The width can be changed in the following navigation:
    1. Click the "object" title
    2. Settings->characteristic display->lead column

    However, it is not possible to build lead column with more than 67 characters.

    PS: if you want to save the new settings, please remember to click the "save" button after this change.

    Best regards,
    Kim

    Thank you for your answers, however lead column width can only show 60 characters at a time. Thank you for your solutions, they were all helpful but not completely because of SAP standard I guess.

    Still description is missing a bit 😊 Thanks
