ALV IDA Data Processing

Hello Floks,

I have one doubt, suppose I have created CDS view and wanted to display ALV by using ALV IDA.

But suppose if I want to process some data before displaying on ALV IDA is it possible.

As per my understanding ALV IDA used to show views or(table not sure).

(This might be silly question 🤪)

    Hi Amol,

    what exaclty do you mean by "process some data".

    If you like to do calculations or aggregations on the data, you might want to use dedicated functionality provided by CDS. But as you are operating directly on database content (not on internal tables), you don't face the same functionality in ALV and ALV IDA. On the other hand, you get the full power of the database with ALV IDA, as the framework takes care of paging, aggregations, etc.

    • Hi Amol,

      correct. Whether CDS is capable or not depends on the logic you'd like to perform. But you cannot use the "normal ABAP", as you're not working with an internal table but with a CDS view or a DB table (in form of the DDIC table) directly.
