ALV field catalogue: SELTEXT_L does not work in column selection



I have an ALV report that basically works. The problem is when users try to select columns in 'Change Layout', some of the column names are different from what is displayed in the list. E.g. one column header is 'DOB' in the list, but in the column selection, it is 'Birth date'. In the internal table, this field is is defined as: GBDAT LIKE P0002-GBDAT. And in the field catalogue definition, all fields have the following definitions:

<FS_GT_FIELDCAT>-SELTEXT_L = 'DOB'. (The text changes for each field.)


So what is wrong?

Thanks a lot,
