Date Format incorrect when downloading the content of ALV to Excel file


I am trying to download ALV report into a excel file using GUI_DOWNLOAD function module. I have a issue when downloading date into excel say 07/07/2007 is downloading as 7/7/2007 because of this the uploading the same file is giving error.

SAP experts pls help me in resolving this.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sam,

    If you are uploading the file into ABAP system, then you could download dates in SY-DATUM form.

    For ex. 07/07/2007 as 20070707.

    Then when u dwnload the file, this unchanged then when uploading back you should not face any problem.

      I would suggest you to use ALV_XXL_CALL if your want to keep your data formats intact.

      like this - CALL FUNCTION 'ALV_XXL_CALL'


      i_tabname = 'T_GRID' " Name of your internal table

      it_fieldcat = t_fcatk[] "Your LAV grids catalog.


      it_outtab = t_grid "Internal table itself


      fatal_error = 1

      no_display_possible = 2

      OTHERS = 3.

      IF sy-subrc <> 0.

      MESSAGE e806(bk).


      hope it helps.
