    Yes, there is a coding difference, you use WRITE statements to produce a classical report, for ALV, there is a number of ways to produce an ALV report. One is the function module REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY which you call and pass some parameters and the output is displayed. You can also use the class CL_GUI_ALV_GRID which allows you to produce an ALV grid in a screen container. You can also use the newst technlogy which is the ALV object model, which is an encapsulation of the existing ALV tools wrapped up in a nice object oriented set of wrapper classes.
