    Hi,

    ALV LIST Can be coded using only FMs

    ALV GRID Can be coded using FMs and object oriented concepts

    ALV LIST Can be displayed hieraicharlly

    ALV GRID cannot be displayed hierarichally

    ALV grid uses ActiveX controls

    present on the Presentation Server.

    Hence, it consumes More Memory

    on the presentation server.

    ALV LIST is Display Only.

    Whereas

    ALV Grid Can Be made EDITABLE for entry purpose.

    In alv grid, these options are possible,

    but not in alv list.

    without horizontal lines

    without vertical lines

    without cell merging during sorts

    display total lines above the entries

    check these links

    Hi,

    For all practical purposes, they are the same.

    <b>differences:</b>

    a) from abap coding point of view,

    alv list is done with Function modules,

    alv gris can also be done with FM,

    but can also be done using OO concepts.

    b) Alv grid (using oo concept) requires

    designing the screen layout .

    Hence, in one screen, we can show more

    then one alv grid

    (we cannot show more than

    one alv list on one screen)

    c) ALV grid uses ActiveX controls

    present on the Presentation Server.

    Hence, it consumes More Memory

    on the presentation server.

    d) ALV LIST is Display Only.

    Whereas

    ALV Grid Can Be made EDITABLE for entry purpose.

    e) In alv grid, these options are possible,

    but not in alv list.

    without horizontal lines

    without vertical lines

    without cell merging during sorts

    display total lines above the entries

    ALV LIST Can be coded using only FMs

    ALV GRID Can be coded using FMs and object oriented concepts

    ALV LIST Can be displayed hieraicharlly

    ALV GRID cannot be displayed hierarichally

    <b>reward if helpful</b>

    rgds,

    Hi Santosh

    grids are more user interactive than lists

    u can performs sorting filtering summing on o/p grid itself

    by using the oops concept u can display as many number of grids in a single screen.

    you can edit data in the grid o/p

    reward points to all helpful answers

    If u use Grid Display in ALV use REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY

    If its a Hierarchical Reports use REUSE_ALV_HIERSEQ_LIST_DISPLAY

    IF its a ordinary list use REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY

    in alv grid u can select entire coloumn it just look like excel sheet format and more user interactive

    The ALV Grid function mudules allow you to display an internal data table as a report, with as little

    effort as possible. The result also provides you with a large amount of standard functionality such as

    sort, total, add/remove columns, download etc.

    http://www.sapdevelopment.co.uk/reporting/alv/alvgrid.htm

    List- older way.

    The ALV List function mudules are basically an older version of the GRID function modules.

    They too allow you to display an internal data table as a report, with as little effort as possible.

    The result has very similar standard functionality but is visually not as pleasing as the ALvgrid

    reward if u find use ful

    hi,

    list display when used displays list as a normal report eventhough we used ABAP LIST LISTER.

    grid display displays the list in more graphical form.

    if helpful reward some points.

    with regards,

    Suresh Aluri,
