ALV - vertical text

Hi!

I have written an ALV-report. Because I have to display many columns and the screen width is limited I would like to put the headertext vertical instead of horizontal. Is that an easy thing to do with ALV?

    HI Patrick,

    I doubt if you can do it using an alv.

    Column headings will have a tool tip feature by default.

    So, you can play with the display lengths of fields instead of diplaying columns headings as vertical text.

    Try to set the output length to as minimum as possible., when you build the field catalog.

      Patrick,

      This is not an attribute of the ALV controls.

      You would need to export the data to Excel, and then programatically do the vertical text there.

    <i>Because I have to display many columns and the screen width is limited </i>

    What about using ALV grid? You don't have such limitations there.

      Peter,

      By Patrick's phrase "ALV report", I believe that he means ALV grid.

      And an ALV grid does have such limitations. It does not support vertical text.

    Hi Patrick,

    There is no such paramter in ALV.

    You can only control the screen width in the output.
