Headings of ALV in login language

Hi All,

I am stuck in displaying the column headings of alv in login language. We are working in 2 languages; english and german. Now I want the headings to be displayed according to the login language.

How can I define the text element in such a way that no matter whatever is the language

Kindly guide me in this regard.

    Hi Mark, Are you explicitly setting the headings in your program using the field catalog?

    If you were referencing the fields from the data dictionary and the translation was there in the data element, I would assume that you would see the German when logged in using language DE.

    Hi,

    I would say while building the field catalog..It is better to give the dictionary reference so that the text automatically from the ddic..

    For example if you are displaying material number..Use the data element MATNR..

    This will make sure if you login in German / English..The texts will be displayed accordingly..

    If you are using custom data elements..Make sure you translate the data elements in SE63 for the German language also..

    Thanks,

    Naren

    Hi Mark,

    1) Define the required texts as text elements.

    2) In SE38, go into "Change" for the text elements and select Goto>Translation.

    3) You will be asked to specify the source and target languages (EN and DE).

    4) On the following screen you then enter the translation for each text element.

    5) Save when complete

    As long as your program references the required texts as TEXT-001 etc (i.e. by the text symbol name) it will automatically pick up the value for the logon language.

    Hope that helps.

    Points Appreciated!
