    Yes, it is possible to download column headers with GUI_DOWNLOAD. To do this,

    you must provide the parameter FIELDNAMES with a corresponding table:

    This table must be a single-line table.

    The following is a corresponding "showcase" source code:

    REPORT reportname.

    " Declaration of Line Type: SPFLI *

    TYPES: BEGIN OF line_type,

    field1 LIKE spfli-carrid,

    field2 LIKE spfli-connid,

    field3 LIKE spfli-cityfrom,

    END OF line_type.

    " Declaration of Table Type *

    TYPES tab_type TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF line_type.

    " Declaration of internal Table *

    DATA: itab TYPE tab_type.

    " Declaration of workarea *

    DATA: wa TYPE line_type.

    " Declaration of Fieldnames *

    DATA: BEGIN OF colnames OCCURS 0,

    col(10) TYPE c,

    END OF colnames.

    " One Colname per line *

    colnames-col = 'Column1'. APPEND colnames.

    colnames-col = 'Column2'. APPEND colnames.

    colnames-col = 'Column3'. APPEND colnames.


    " Get the data and fill the workarea *

    SELECT carrid connid cityfrom

    FROM spfli

    INTO (wa-field1, wa-field2, wa-field3).

    APPEND wa TO itab.


    IF sy-subrc <> 0.

    MESSAGE ID sy-msgid TYPE sy-msgty NUMBER sy-msgno

    WITH sy-msgv1 sy-msgv2 sy-msgv3 sy-msgv4.


    " Now download the itab with fieldnames: *

    " By using dat_mode and fieldseparator *



    filename = 'C:\TEMP\test.txt'

    filetype = 'ASC'

    dat_mode = 'X'

    write_field_separator = 'X'


    data_tab = itab

    fieldnames = colnames


    OTHERS = 1.

    if sy-subrc <> 0.

    message i398(00) with 'Error: ' sy-subrc 'during gui_download!'.
