OO ALV Variants

I have a program with two ALVs on two separate subscreens on two tabs. The problem is that I'm allowing the user to save their own variants using the following code:

    call method grid1->set_table_for_first_display
             i_save = 'A'
             is_variant = gs_variant
             is_layout = gs_layout

    changing it_fieldcatalog = gt_fieldcat
             it_sort = gt_sort
             it_outtab = g_case_control_itab.


    CALL METHOD alvgrid_wfdoc_m->set_table_for_first_display
        is_layout       = alvlout_wfdoc_m
        is_variant      = alvvari_wfdoc_m
        i_save          = 'A'
        it_fieldcatalog = alvfcat_wfdoc_m
        it_outtab       = g_tbl_mtratch
        it_filter       = alvfilt_wfdoc_m.

In both cases I'm only passing the field sy-repid to the structure is_variant and the upshot of this is that changing one variant on one screen changes the other as the program is unable to distinguish between the two.

So, I've worked out that I need to fill more fields in the variant structure, the following fields are available:

REPORT - already filling this







Can anyone tell me which fields I need to populate to get two separate lists of variants for each alv? So I can maintain one variant on one screen and not affect anything on the second screen? Each screen has completely different fields.

    I´m not sure to have understood your question very well, but, if I am in the certain, but I think that you want to execute a report with an ALV using a variant. In this mode, you have to save the name of the variant you want to use, in the field VARIANT. When you have an alv, you can SAVE a variant using the corresponding buttons, then, when you have the variant, you can execute de ALV using the variant created.

    I hope that my information have been useful to you.

    Very Lucky in your Report.
