The list setting or the <b><b>Print Preview format of an ALV Grid</b></b> in our Production system does not default the column length to that in the ALV Report output .
A particular column of length 18 in the ALV Grid defaults to 15 in the Print Preview /
Because the ALV Grid output goes to a spool ( when run through Background Job ) which displays the same result as obtained in the Print Preview , we need to configure the Print Preview such that it picks the same column length as obtained in the ALV Grid Output .
Kindly note that we have already tried to assign a layout in the Print Preview , but that needs to be manually done , while we will need to automate this .
Any suggestion will be rewarded .
