ALV Export to Excel problem


Hi All

I have a problem with exporting a ALV Grid to Excel. If I add the quantity field to my Grid output the excel spreadsheet does not bring through the quantity field and it puts all the other columns one place out. I tried changing field attributes from QUAN to CHAR field and it made no difference.

I am using the standard sap functionality:

List > Save > Local File > Spreadsheet

It works fine as long as I do not include my quantity column? I have tried many other custom FM's with no luck because all of them require you to put in a internal table inside the function but I do not want to send whole internal table to spreadsheet only the ones selected in the ALV Grid. So please do not suggest function modules as I have had no luck with these!

I need to know how to use the standard sap alv export to excel function with my quantity field? The only issue I can think of that would cause a error would be that I have 50+ columns on the grid and internal table. Even If I put quantity field by itself in the grid then export to excel it brings through the Qty header but no data.
