Maximum coloumns in ALV


Hi Experts,

What is the maximum number of coloumns i can have on a classic ALV report?

Iam having a dynamic table whose number of coloumns keeps on change. So to avoid phyisical dump, i have to set a limit for the number of coloumns.

Is there any limit based on the number of charecters? even with 120 coloumns, in my ALV out put, if choose display varient, it shows line width and list width as 1640. if i click Choose button here it says 'Maximum list width (1,024 characters) exceeded'. but all the coloumns are displayed.

why is it so? Is it possible to set this line width and list witdth while calling ALV (REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY)

what are the other things to take care, with too many coloumns in ALV?

Thanking you in anticipation.
