    Hi Sanjana

    I prefer ALV grid because:

    After a report has been generated, there are many options available for customizing the data within the ALV grid. The sections below give more information for using the available options.

    Modifying Columns

    There are many options for manually modifying columns, including resizing, moving, freezing, sorting, hiding, and calculating.

    Resize Columns

    To resize a column, place your cursor over the line between column headers. When it turns into a cross, click and drag the edge of the column.

    Move Columns

    To move a column, click the column header once to select it. Then click and drag the column header to a new location.

    Freeze Columns

    To freeze a column, right-click the column header and select Freeze to Column. The column will not move when you scroll. To unfreeze the column, right-click the column header and select Unfreeze Columns.

    Sort Columns

    To sort a column, select a column header then click the appropriate sort icon. The icon sorts a column in ascending order. The icon sorts a column in descending order.

    Hide Columns

    To hide a column, right-click the column header and select Hide.

    Calculate Columns

    If a column is totaled, the mean, minimum, or maximum value can be determined by following the menu path Edit > Calculate and then selecting the desired option. The calculated value replaces the total at the end of the report.

    Navigating Subtotals

    To expand or collapse the lines included in a single subtotal, click the expand or collapse icon next to the field being subtotaled. To expand or collapse all subtotals, click the expand/collapse icon in the lower lefthand corner of the total line. Expand or collapse individual subtotals Expand or collapse all subtotals

    Change a Report Layout

    While many individual modifications can be made to a report using icons and dragging columns, multiple modifications can be made at once using the change layout function. The Change Layout icon provides an interface for changing the column order and the sort order. It allows you to apply filters and display options to the report. Below are directions for each of these functions. After making changes, click (Transfer) to apply your changes.

    Change Column Order

    The Columns tab is used to select and order the columns you want to appear on your report. The names on the left indicate the columns included in the order they will appear. The names on the right are the available fields that can be added. Double-click on a column name to move it from one area to the other. To reorder the columns, select a column name and click the arrows at the top of the tab to move the column up or down a position.

    Change Sort Order

    The Sort Order tab is used to define the sort order and subtotaling by column. The names on the left indicate the columns to be sorted in the order they will be sorted. The names on the right are the available columns. Double-click on a column name to move it from one area to the other. To reorder the columns, select a column name and click the arrows at the top of the tab to move the column up or down a position. There are three fields to the left of each included column. The first radio button indicates ascending order. The second radio button indicates descending order. The check box determines if the column is subtotaled.

    Apply Filter

    The Filter tab is used to set criteria for including or excluding specific items in a report. The names on the left indicate the columns to be filtered in the order they will be filtered. The names on the right are the available columns. Double-click on a column name to move it from one area to the other. To reorder the columns, select a column name and click the arrows at the top of the tab to move the column up or down a position. You click another tab or close the dialog box, an additional dialog box displays for you to enter the filter criteria. You can use the multiple selection icon to enter multiple values or ranges. You can also use dynamic selections to apply operators to the criteria. When you are finished entering values, click (Copy) to apply the filter.

    Change Display Options

    The Display tab is used to change the way a report is displayed. The following table provides an

    explanation of each option.

    Display Option Description

    Without horizontal gridlines Removes horizontal lines

    Without vertical gridlines Removes vertical lines

    Without column headings Removes column headers

    Without cell merging during sorts Places a horizontal line between each entry. If

    not checked, horizontal lines are removed

    between identical values.

    With optimum column width Set each column to the width of its largest value

    With striped pattern Set every other row to a different color

    Display totals lines above the entries Moves totals and subtotals above the lines they

    summarize

    Save a Report Layout

    1. Click (Save Layout).

    2. Enter a name in the Save Layout field. The name must begin with a letter.

    3. Type in a description for the layout in the Name field.

    4. Select the Default Setting check box if you want this layout to be the default layout every time you run

    the report.

    5. Click (Continue).

    Note: A warning message will appear if you are trying to save over an existing layout. Close the box by

    selecting the X in the upper right hand corner or choose Yes to overwrite the layout.

    Select a Layout

    1. Click (Select Layout).

    2. Select a layout and click (Enter). Your report will display in the layout you have chosen.

    Delete a Layout

    If a layout you created is no longer useful, it can be deleted using the following process.

    1. Follow the menu path Settings > Layout > Manage.

    2. Select the layout(s) to be deleted by clicking on the gray box on the left side of the layout name.

    3. Click (Delete layout). The layout is removed.

    4. Click (Back). A pop-up box displays asking you to save your changes. Click Yes.

    Report Integration with Microsoft Office

    After generating a report, it is possible to export it into Microsoft Excel and/or Microsoft Word using three different options. Each of these options saves the file in a slightly different format. Before using any of these options, you have to set the macro security in your Office products to medium. Within your Office program, follow the menu path Tools > Macro > Security. Select the Medium security setting. Then click the Trusted Sources tab and ensure all the check boxes are selected. Click OK to save the changes. For the best results, ensure your Office program is closed before performing any of the following actions.

    Save to Local File

    Using this export option will retain all of the formatting that you may have done to the report in SAP, such as moving columns, setting filters and sorts, etc., but will not retain any of the color or font formatting in SAP, unless you choose the HTML option.

    1. Click (Local file). The Save list in file... box will open.

    2. Choose the desired file type in which to save the file.

    • unconverted - tab-delimited file not associated with a program

    • Spreadsheet - Microsoft Excel file

    • Rich text format - Microsoft Word file

    • HTML format - HTML file. This option adds some formatting, which will make it display

    similiar to the report in SAP.

    3. Click (Continue). The Transfer DAT to a Local File box will open.

    4. The default location in which to save the file is your "SAPWorkDir" folder. Click (Search) to

    choose another location.

    5. Enter your file name at the end of the path and use the proper extension associated with the file

    type you chose in step 2.

    • unconverted - none

    • Spreadsheet - .xls

    • Rich text format - .rtf

    • HTML format - .html

    6. Click . The message "XXX Bytes transferred" will display, indicating that your file was

    successful exported.

    Exporting to Microsoft Excel

    Using this export option will not retain any of the formatting that you applied in SAP, such as moving columns, setting filters and sorts, etc. However, it does add a colored background and heading and retains the proper column width.

    1. Click (Spreadsheet...). An Information box will open advising you that any formatting you have

    applied in SAP will not be exported with the data.

    2. Click (Continue). The Export list object to XXL box will open.

    3. Choose Table and click (Continue).

    4. Click (Continue) again.

    5. Excel will open with the report displayed. You can now format the report and save it as necessary.

    6. In SAP, an Information box opens stating that you should save the data in the spreadsheet. As

    soon as you click (Continue), the report in Excel closes, so be sure you have saved it if

    necessary before doing so.

    Opening Microsoft Excel within SAP

    This export option will actually open Microsoft Excel within SAP, allowing you to use any of the formatting or calculation features available in Excel along with the SAP tools. However, modifying the data in the Excel spreadsheet within SAP will not change the actual data in SAP itself.

    1. Click (Change layout...). The Change layout box will open.

    2. Click the View tab.

    3. Choose the Excel option.

    4. Click on sap_om.xls in the Template list that displays on the right side of the box.

    5. Click (Transfer).

    6. Microsoft Excel will open in the window where the report data was displayed. You can now use all

    of the options within Microsoft Excel and SAP to format and manipulate the data as necessary.

    7. To save the file, follow the Excel menu path File > Save Copy As.

    8. To close Excel, click (Change layout...), click the View tab, choose the Grid option, and click

    (Transfer).

    Exporting to Microsoft Word

    Using this option will not retain any of the formatting that you applied in SAP, such as moving columns, setting filters and sorts, etc., and it will export the data in a table within Word.

    1. Click (Word Processing...). The Word Processor Settings box will open.

    2. Choose the Create Document option and select Include Colors and/or Start MS Word if desired.

    3. Click (Continue). The Transfer RTF to a Local File box will open.

    4. The default location in which to save the file is your "SAPWorkDir" folder. Click (Search) to

    choose another location.

    5. Enter the file name at the end of the path and add the extension .rtf.

    6. Click .

    7. If you chose the option to have Word open, it will now open with the data displayed.

    Hi,

    SAP provides a set of ALV (ABAP LIST VIEWER) function modules which can be put into use to beautify the output of a report. This set of ALV functions is used to enhance the readability and functionality of any report output. Cases arise in SAP when the output of a report contains columns extending more than 255 characters in length. In such cases, this set of ALV functions can help choose selected columns and arrange the different columns from a report output and also save different variants for report display. This is a very efficient tool for dynamically sorting and arranging the columns from a report output. The report output can contain upto 90 columns in the display with the wide array of display options.

    The commonly used ALV functions used for this purpose are;

    1. REUSE_ALV_VARIANT_DEFAULT_GET

    2. REUSE_ALV_VARIANT_F4

    3. REUSE_ALV_VARIANT_EXISTENCE

    4. REUSE_ALV_EVENTS_GET

    5. REUSE_ALV_COMMENTARY_WRITE

    6. REUSE_ALV_FIELDCATALOG_MERGE

    7. REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY

    8. REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY

    9. REUSE_ALV_POPUP_TO_SELECT

    The different steps used for getting the above function modules into use are :

    Step 1

    DATA DECLARATION

    Sap standard type pools: SLIS, KKBLO.

    Sap standard tables types taken from the type pools are: SLIS_LAYOUT_ALV,

    SLIS_T_FIELDCAT_ALV,

    SLIS_T_LISTHEADER,

    SLIS_T_EVENT,

    SLIS_SELFIELD.

    Internal tables to used in the program declared based on the above table types

    DATA: I_LAYOUT TYPE SLIS_LAYOUT_ALV,

    I_FIELDTAB TYPE SLIS_T_FIELDCAT_ALV,

    I_HEADING TYPE SLIS_T_LISTHEADER,

    I_EVENTS TYPE SLIS_T_EVENT.

    TYPES: KKBLO_SELFIELD TYPE SLIS_SELFIELD.

    Step 2 (Optional)

    SELECTING THE VARIANTS FOR INITIAL LIST DISPLAY (DEFAULT VARIANT)

    The variants in the list display can be both user-specific and general. The user can programmatically set the initial (default) variant for list display.

    The default variant can be found using the function module 'REUSE_ALV_VARIANT_DEFAULT_GET'.

    Sample code:

    CALL FUNCTION 'REUSE_ALV_VARIANT_DEFAULT_GET'

    EXPORTING

    i_save = variant save condition ( A=all, U = user-specific )

    CHANGING

    cs_variant = internal table containing the program name (and the default variant---optional )

    EXCEPTIONS

    not_found = 2.

    The user can also choose from the list of existing variants using the function module ‘REUSE_ALV_VARIANT_F4’.

    Step 3

    DEFININING OUTPUT CHARACTERISTICS: PREPARING DISPLAY FIELDS CATALOG

    A field catalog is prepared using the internal table (I_FIELDCAT) of type SLIS_T_FIELDCAT_ALV. Field catalog containing descriptions of the list output fields (usually a subset of the internal output table fields).

    A field catalog is required for every ALV list output to add desired functionality (i.e. Key, Hotspot, Specific headings, Justify, Col. position etc) to certain fields of the output. If not mentioned specifically, then the defaults are taken. The possible values and defaults are listed below.

    The field catalog for the output table is built-up in the caller's coding. The build-up can be completely or partially automated by calling the REUSE_ALV_FIELDCATALOG_MERGE module.

    The minimal field catalog is documented below. This can be done in a routine using a local variable. The user can use the other optional parameters to assign output attributes to different fields in the output, which differ from the default.

    A field catalog need not be built-up and passed explicitly only under the following conditions:

    1. The internal table to be output has the same structure as a Data Dictionary structure which is referred to in the internal table declaration using LIKE or INCLUDE STRUCTURE. In this case the attributes of the different fields is taken directly from the table and the attributes (key fields, length, texts etc) need to state explicitly.

    2. all fields in this structure are to be output

    3. The structure name is passed to ALV in the parameter I_STRUCTURE_NAME of the function module REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY.

    All the values entered in the catalog are specific to the particular field whose name is entered in the fieldname FIELDNAME of the fieldcat structure. The name of the table is also entered in the corr. Fieldname TABNAME of the structure.

    The different possible attributes are:

    • Row_pos (row position): Only relevant if the list output is to be multi-line (two or three lines) by default. So, this attribute can be used maintain certain level of alignment in the output.

    Value set: 0, 1 – 3

    • Col_pos (column position): This parameter is relevant when the fields in the output are to be different from the sequence of the fields in the internal table used for display. The parameter specifies the relative column position of the field in the list output. The column order can be changed interactively by the user. If this parameter is initial for all field catalog entries, columns appear in the internal table field sequence.

    Value set: 0, 1 – 60

    • Fieldname (field name): This is the name of the internal table field for which the parameters are passed in the catalog.

    Value set: internal output table field name (required parameter)

    • Tabname (internal output table): Name of the internal output table that contains the field FIELDCAT-FIELDNAME above.

    Value set: SPACE, internal output table name.

    • Ref_fieldname (reference field name): Name of the Data Dictionary field referred to. This parameter is only used when the internal output table field described by the current field catalog entry has a reference to the Data Dictionary (not a program field), and the field name in the internal output table is different from the name of the field in the Data Dictionary. If the field names are identical, naming the Data Dictionary structure or table in the FIELDCAT-REF_TABNAME parameter is sufficient.

    Value set: SPACE, Data Dictionary field name.

    • Ref_tabname (reference table/structure field name): Structure or table name of the referred Data Dictionary field. This parameter is only used when the internal output table field described by the current field catalog entry has a Data Dictionary reference (not a program field).

    Value set: SPACE, name of a Data Dictionary structure or table

    Link to currency unit

    • Cfieldname (currency unit field name): This is used for currency fields that have a reference to any unit field. This is only relevant for amount columns with associated unit. This parameter contains the Name of the internal output table field containing the currency unit associated with the amount field FIELDCAT-FIELDNAME. The field in FIELDCAT-CFIELDNAME must have its own field catalog entry.

    Value set: SPACE, output table field name

    • Ctabname (internal currency unit field output table): Name of the internal output table containing the FIELDCAT-CFIELDNAME field.

    Value set: SPACE, output table field name.

    Link to measurement unit

    • Qfieldname (measurement unit field name): Only relevant for quantity columns with unit link. Name of the internal output table field containing the measurement unit associated with the quantity field FIELDCAT-FIELDNAME. The field in FIELDCAT-QFIELDNAME must have its own field catalog entry.

    Value set: SPACE, output table field name.

    • Qtabname (internal measurement unit field output table): Name of the internal output table containing the FIELDCAT-QFIELDNAME field.

    Value set: SPACE, output table field name.

    • Outputlen (column width): This parameter is used if the desired output length for a field is desired to be different from the internal output table field. For fields with a Data Dictionary link this parameter can be left initial. For fields without a Data Dictionary link (program field) the parameter must be given the value of the desired field list output length (column width).

    Initial = column width is the output length of the referred Data Dictionary field (domain).

    N = column width is n characters.

    Value set: 0 (initial), n.

    • Key (key column): By default, the system makes some fields in the output as key fields, provided the fields are key fields in their referencing table. Using this parameter, fields other than key fields of the referencing table can be made key field. This parameter is most important if the output needs to contain some field which are not scrollable or cannot be hidden.

    If the internal output table contains fields that are key fields from different tables, then all those fields in the report output becomes unscrollable and cannot be hidden. So, the fields in the output internal table should not be referenced from tables in which they are key fields. Instead, they should be referenced to the tables in which they are not key fields, incase they are not desired as key field in the output.

    'X' = key field (key field output in color) and Key fields can not be interactively hidden. Parameter FIELDCAT-NO_OUT must be left initial.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    • Key_sel (hideable key column): This parameter is only relevant for the fields which are made key fields using FIELDCAT-KEY = 'X'. Using this parameter the Key field can be hidden interactively.

    The key column sequence cannot be changed interactively by the user. The output is controlled by the FIELDCAT-NO_OUT parameter analogously to non-key fields.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    • No_out (field in field list): This parameter is used to remove certain fields from the output during initial display. The user can however interactively choose the field for output from the field list in the display variant.

    'X' = field is not displayed in the current list.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    • Tech (technical field): This parameter is used to make certain field display only in the field catalog. The fields with this parameter set cannot be output in the list nor can they be displayed interactively from the catalog.

    'X' = technical field.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    • Emphasize (highlight columns in color): As name suggests, this field parameter is used to highlight certain field with chosen colors.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X' or 'Cxyz' (x:'1'-'9'; y,z: '0'=off ,'1'=on).

    'X' = column is colored with the default column highlight color.

    'Cxyz' = column is colored with a coded color:

    - C: Color (coding must begin with C)

    - X: color number

    - Y: bold

    - Z: inverse

    • Hotspot (column as hotspot): This parameter is used to make certain field appear as hotspot i.e. a hand is displayed if the cursor is positioned on the field value. Single click on such fields cause the PICK OR F2 events to happen.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = column cells are output as hotspots.

    • Fix_column (fix column): This parameter is used to fix certain columns in the output. All columns to be fixed must have this flag, starting from the left. If a column without this flag is output, only the columns to the left of this column are fixed. The user can change the column fixing interactively.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = column fixed (does not scroll horizontally).

    • Do_sum (sum over column): the user can also call this function interactively.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = a sum is calculated over this internal output table field.

    • No_sum (sums forbidden): No sum can be calculated over this field, although the data type of the field would allow summing.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    • Icon: The parameter displays certain column contents as icons. The internal output table column contents must be valid icon strings.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = column contents to be output as an icon.

    • Symbol: The internal output table column must be a valid symbol character.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'

    'X' = column contents are to be output as a symbol.

    • Just (justification): This parameter is used for alignment of the contents of the output table. This is only relevant for CHAR or NUMC fields in the output internal table. The justification of the column header always follows the justification of the columns. Independent justification of the column header is not possible.

    Value set: SPACE, 'R', 'L', and ‘C’.

    ' ' = Default justification for this data type

    'R' = right-justified output

    'L' = left-justified output

    'C' = centered output.

    • Lzero (leading zeros): By default ALV outputs NUMC fields right-justified without leading zeros. Using this parameter only the NUMC fields can be displayed with leading zeroes.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = output with leading zeros.

    • No_sign (no +/- sign): This parameter is used to suppress the signs of the output fields. It is only relevant for the value fields.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = value output without +/ sign.

    • No_zero (suppress zeros): Only relevant for value fields.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'.

    'X' = suppress zeros.

    • Edit_mask (field formatting): To apply the report output formatting options same as in the WRITE statement in report writing.

    Value set: SPACE, template.

    The following parameters are used for customizing the texts in the heading of the output of the columns. The texts are taken from the Data Dictionary for fields with a Data Dictionary reference. If this is not desired, the text parameters can also be specified. The Data Dictionary texts are then ignored.

    If the user changes the column width interactively, the column header text with the appropriate length is always used.

    The interactive function 'Optimize column width' takes account of both the field contents and the column headers: if all field contents are shorter than the shortest column header, the column width depends on the column header.

    The 'long field label' is also used in display variant definition,

    Sort, etc. Popup.

    • seltext_l (long field label)

    • seltext_m (medium field label)

    • seltext_s (short field label)

    • reptext_ddic(header) Analogous to the Data element main header

    • Ddictxt (specify text) : You can specify with values 'L', 'M', and 'S', the keyword that should always be used as column header. If the column width changes, no attempt is made in this case to find an appropriate header for the new output width.

    Value set: SPACE, 'L', 'M', and ‘S’.

    Sample code:

    Suppose I_PO_DETAILS is an internal table containing two fields EBELN (PO number) and EBELP (PO item no).

    DATA: L_FIELDCAT TYPE SLIS_FIELDCAT_ALV. “Local variable to hold the parameters

    for a particular field of the field catalog

    CLEAR L_FIELDCAT.

    L_FIELDCAT-TABNAME = 'I_PO_DETAILS'.

    L_FIELDCAT-FIELDNAME = 'EBELN'.

    L_FIELDCAT-KEY = 'X'. “The PO no is made the key field,

    “Colored and non scrollable

    L_FIELDCAT-HOTSPOT = 'X'. “The po no becomes a hotspot

    L_FIELDCAT-SELTEXT_S = ‘P.O No’.

    L_FIELDCAT-SELTEXT_M = 'P order No'.

    L_FIELDCAT-SELTEXT_L = 'Purchase order No'.

    APPEND L_FIELDCAT TO I_FIELDTAB.

    CLEAR L_FIELDCAT

    L_FIELDCAT-TABNAME = 'I_PO_DETAILS'.

    L_FIELDCAT-FIELDNAME = 'EBELN'.

    L_FIELDCAT-KEY = 'X'. “The po item no is made the key field,

    “Colored and non scrollable

    L_FIELDCAT-SELTEXT_S = 'Item No'.

    L_FIELDCAT-SELTEXT_M = 'Item No`.

    L_FIELDCAT-SELTEXT_L = 'PO Item No'.

    APPEND L_FIELDCAT TO I_FIELDTAB.

    CLEAR L_FIELDCAT

    Thus the catalog for the report output is prepared.

    Step 4

    The next step is to build an event table, which are used for firing both user commands and the system dependent events i.e. top of page, end of page etc.

    A list of possible events is populated into an event table (I_EVENTS) when this table is passed to the function module REUSE_ALV_EVENT_NAMES_GET. The return table from this function module contains all the possible events.

    The function module contains following import and export parameters.

    IMPORTING PARAMETERS: I_LIST_TYPE

    This parameter has possible values from 0-4.

    The parameter I_LIST_TYPE is of TYPE SLIS_LIST_TYPE and is DEFAULT 0 .

    EXPORTING PARAMETERS: I_EVENTS table.

    This table is of TYPE SLIS_T_EVENT and returns to the program the name of all the possible events.

    The table structure contains the fields:

    I_EVENTS-NAME: Name of the Callback event.

    I_EVENTS-FORM: Name of the form routine that should be called in the calling program at the event.

    Only events with a form routine name are processed.

    The I_EVENTS table returns with the following possible constants:

    1. Slis_ev_item_data_expand TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'ITEM_DATA_EXPAND'.

    Only relevant for hierarchical-sequential lists using the layout parameter IS_LAYOUT-EXPAND_FIELDNAME of the structure IS_LAYOUT. Exit for passing item entries (ITEM table) for a header record that was expanded interactively by the user.

    2. Slis_ev_reprep_sel_modify TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'REPREP_SEL_MODIFY'.

    RS_SELFIELD-TABINDEX contains the header table index for which the item entries are to be put in the global item output table (T_OUTTAB_SLAVE). The Callback is only called if ALV has no items for a header that is to be expanded.

    RFLG_ALL is passed with 'X' if the user shows all items. The application must ensure that entries are not repeated in the item table.

    RS_SELFIELD is initial in this case.

    3. Slis_ev_caller_exit_at_start TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'CALLER_EXIT'.

    Is called at the beginning of the function module to make special settings. It is not usually used.

    4. Slis_ev_user_command TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'USER_COMMAND'.

    As this is a frequently-used Callback event, the form routine can also be passed directly in the interface by passing the user command in the IMPORTING parameter I_CALLBACK_USER_COMMAND.

    5. Slis_ev_top_of_page TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'TOP_OF_PAGE'.

    Equivalent to the list processing TOP-OF-PAGE event.

    6. Slis_ev_top_of_coverpage TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'TOP_OF_COVERPAGE'.

    The selection information and list status are output together (if they exist) on a separate page by default

    7. Slis_ev_end_of_coverpage TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'END_OF_COVERPAGE'.

    Analogously to TOP_OF_COVERPAGE the user can add other information

    to the information output by ALV (selection information, list status) at this event.

    8. Slis_ev_foreign_top_of_page TYPE slis_formname VALUE ‘FOREIGN_TOP_OF_PAGE'.

    The Top-of-page event is always processed in ALV and is only passed to the caller via the Callback mechanism. This is still the case if the caller, e.g. by a user action, processes a branch list which was not formatted by ALV (e.g. a popup with additional information about the list record selected and displayed by ALV).

    In this case, top-of-page cannot be formatted by ALV analogously to the basic list, it must be handled completely by the caller. The event top-of-page still occurs in ALV. When ALV notices a top-of-page which was not caused by an ALV output, the form routine in FOREIGN_TOP_OF_PAGE is called.

    9. Slis_ev_foreign_end_of_page TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'FOREIGN_END_OF_PAGE'.

    The event end-of-page is always processed in ALV and only passed to the caller via callback. This is still the case, e.g. when the caller processes a details list which was not formatted by ALV (e.g. a popup with further information about selected list records which were displayed by ALV).

    In this case, end-of-page cannot be formatted by ALV analogously to the basic list, it must be handled completely by the caller. The event end-of-page still occurs in ALV. When ALV notices an end-of-page that was not caused by an ALV output, the form routine in FOREIGN_END_OF_PAGE is called.

    10. Slis_ev_pf_status_set TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'PF_STATUS_SET'.

    If a user list status is to be set, it must be done in the form routine assigned to this event. The ALV function codes, which must not be active, are in the Parameter RT_EXTAB. This table must be passed with the SET PF-STATUS command (with inactive user function codes as well, if necessary).

    The STANDARD status of the function group SALV should be used as a template for a user-specific status. As this is a frequently used Callback event, its form routine can also be passed directly in the interface in the IMPORTING parameter I_CALLBACK_PF_STATUS_SET.

    11. Slis_ev_list_modify TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'LIST_MODIFY'.

    LIST_MODIFY USING R_TABNAME TYPE SLIS_TABNAME

    R_INDEX LIKE SY-TABIX

    R_INDEX_ITEM LIKE SY-TABIX

    R_INDEX_SUM LIKE SY-TABIX.

    12. Slis_ev_top_of_list TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'TOP_OF_LIST'.

    Information output at the start of the list

    13. Slis_ev_end_of_page TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'END_OF_PAGE'.

    Information output at the end of a page. This is only called for printing.

    14. Slis_ev_end_of_list TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'END_OF_LIST'.

    Information output at the end of the list

    15. Slis_ev_after_line_output TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'AFTER_LINE_OUTPUT'.

    Output information after each output line. Should only be used in justified cases because it costs a lot of performance.

    16. Slis_ev_before_line_output TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'BEFORE_LINE_OUTPUT'.

    Output information before each output line. Should only be used in justified cases because it costs a lot of performance.

    17. Slis_ev_subtotal_text TYPE slis_formname VALUE 'SUBTOTAL_TEXT'.

    This event table (I_EVENTS) is now checked with the desired constants. If the desired constant is found, then the corresponding field for the FORM NAME is populated with the name of the routine containing the corresponding event.

    Sample code :

    FORMNAME_TOP_OF_PAGE TYPE SLIS_FORMNAME VALUE 'TOP_OF_PAGE',

    FORMNAME_END_OF_PAGE TYPE SLIS_FORMNAME VALUE 'END_OF_PAGE', FORMNAME_USER_COMMAND TYPE SLIS_FORMNAME VALUE 'USER_COMMAND'.

    DATA: L_I_EVENT TYPE SLIS_ALV_EVENT.

    CALL FUNCTION 'REUSE_ALV_EVENTS_GET'

    EXPORTING

    I_LIST_TYPE = 0

    IMPORTING

    ET_EVENTS = I_EVENTS.

    READ TABLE I_EVENTS WITH KEY NAME = SLIS_EV_TOP_OF_PAGE

    INTO L_I_EVENT.

    IF SY-SUBRC = 0.

    MOVE FORMNAME_TOP_OF_PAGE TO L_I_EVENT-FORM.

    APPEND L_I_EVENT TO I_EVENTS.

    ENDIF.

    READ TABLE I_EVENTS WITH KEY NAME = SLIS_EV_END_OF_PAGE

    INTO L_I_EVENT.

    IF SY-SUBRC = 0.

    MOVE FORMNAME_END_OF_PAGE TO L_I_EVENT-FORM.

    APPEND L_I_EVENT TO I_EVENTS.

    ENDIF.

    CLEAR L_I_EVENT.

    READ TABLE I_EVENTS WITH KEY NAME = SLIS_EV_USER_COMMAND

    INTO L_I_EVENT.

    IF SY-SUBRC = 0.

    MOVE FORMNAME_USER_COMMAND TO L_I_EVENT-FORM.

    APPEND L_I_EVENT TO I_EVENTS.

    ENDIF.

    This will prepare the events table for the report.

    The report will contain three forms for the above events:

    1. FORM TOP_OF_PAGE : This form will contain the top of page event for the report i.e header etc

    Using the function module ‘REUSE_ALV_COMMENTARY_WRITE’, the internal table containing the headings for top of page event can be passed to the list output. Also, any logo specific to the report can be passed to the function module.

    2. FORM END_OF_PAGE : This form will contain the end of page event for the report i.e footer etc

    3. FORM USER_COMMAND : This form will contain the desired user command i.e pick/line selection

    Step 5

    A layout is build for the report output list description USING the internal table declared above (I_LAYOUT).

    Output list description structure.

    The parameters are described under the following heads:

    • Display options

    • Exceptions

    • Totals

    • Interaction

    • Detail screen

    • Display variants (only for hierarchical-sequential lists)

You can toggle between display field and field list views via pushbuttons in the display variant definition popup for hierarchical-sequential lists. The views refer to the hierarchy level of the fields. This is technically a toggle between the header table and item table fields.

    Value set: SPACE, CHAR (20)

    ' ' = The header table field pushbutton text is 'Header' by default.

    CHAR (20) = header table field pushbutton text.

    Value set: SPACE, CHAR (20)

    ' ' = The pushbutton text for the item table fields is 'Item' by default.

    CHAR (20) = item table field pushbutton text.

    44.default_ item(1) TYPE c : Items as default. Only relevant for hierarchical-sequential lists.

    Value set: SPACE, 'X'

    ' ' = The header table fields are displayed by default in the display variant definition popup. The user can switch to the item table fields interactively.

    'X' = the item table fields are displayed by default in the display variant Definition Popup. The user can switch to the header table fields interactively.

    Colour

    45. Info_fieldname TYPE slis_fieldname: infofield for listoutput. A whole list record can be colored individually using a color code in a column of the internal output table for the record. Assign the name of the field containing the color code to this parameter.

    Value set: SPACE, internal output table field name

    The internal output table field must be of type CHAR(3).

    The code must have the following syntax: 'Cxy':

    C = color (all codes must start with 'C')

    X = color number ('1'-'9')

    Y = bold ('0' = off, '1' = on)

    46. Coltab_fieldname TYPE slis_fieldname: Cells can be colored individually using a color code which is contained in a column of the internal output table for the record containing the cell. Assign the name of the field to this parameter.

    Others

    47. List_append(1) TYPE c : no call screen. It is only useful to output block-lists without specifying the above modules if the number of list blocks exceeds, or may exceed, the maximum number specified in the block module documentation. These operations are not possible for user-defined block lists.

    Example code :

    I_LAYOUT-f2code = ws_fcode.

    I_LAYOUT-zebra = 'X'.

    I_LAYOUT-colwidth_optimize = 'X'.

    I_LAYOUT-no_keyfix = 'X'.

    I_LAYOUT-get_selinfos = 'X'.

    I_LAYOUT-no_hotspot = 'X'.

    I_LAYOUT-no_input = 'X'.

    I_LAYOUT-hotspot_fieldname = FIELDNAME.

    I_LAYOUT-no_input = ‘X’.

    I_LAYOUT-no_vline = `X’.

    I_LAYOUT-no_colhead = ‘ ‘.

    I_LAYOUT-lights_condense = ` `.

    I_LAYOUT-totals_text = ` `.

    I_LAYOUT-subtotals_text = ` `.

    I_LAYOUT-totals_only = ` `.

    I_LAYOUT-key_hotspot = ‘X’.

    I_LAYOUT-detail_popup = ‘X’.

    I_LAYOUT-group_change_edit = ‘X’.

    I_LAYOUT-GROUP_BUTTONS = ‘X’.

    Step 6

    This step is required to get the selection screen information in the report output.

    The prerequisite for this is to set the parameter LAYOUT-GET_SELINFOS of the IMPORTING structure.

    The parameters to be passed in the IS_SEL_HIDE table are:

    o mode: 'R' = only the entries passed in the internal table IS_SEL_HIDE-T_ENTRIES

    Are output in the pop up. Selection info, which the list tool read in the selection screen (when called by a report with a selection screen), is replaced by the values passed.

    'S' = the selection info which the list tool read in the selection screen of the calling report are modified by the entries in the table IS_SEL_HIDE-T_ENTRIES.

    o t_entries: Selection info table

    o t_entries-mode: 'A' = output the selection info for the current table record in the info popup.

    'D' = do not output select option or SELNAME parameter selection info in the popup.

    o t_entries-selname: (only used in t_entries-mode = 'D') : Name of the select option or parameter.

    The following table fields are only used in t_entries-mode = 'A'. They contain the selection information to be added.

    • t_entries-field: DDIC field name of the field for which selection information is to be output.

    • t_entries-table: DDIC table names of t_entries-field.

    • t_entries-stext: Field name in info popup.

    • If t_entries-field and t_entries-table have been entered, this text is taken from DDIC.

    • t_entries-valuf: Selection condition 'from' value (external format)

    • t_entries-valut: Selection condition 'to' value (external format)

    • t_entries-sign0: (I)nclusive (E)xclusive

    • t_entries-option: All values of the select options Option field allowed.

    Step 6

    The Table IT_SORT is populated with the sort criteria for the different fields.

    The caller specifies the sorting and/or subtotaling of the basic list in the internal table IT_SORT.

    This internal table has the following fields:

    o spos : Sort sequence

    o fieldname : Internal output table field name

    o tabname : Only relevant for hierarchical-sequential lists. Name of the internal output table.

    o up : 'X' = sort in ascending order

    o down : 'X' = sort in descending order

    o subtot : 'X' = subtotal at group value change

    o group : '* ' = new page at group value change ,'UL' = underline at group value change

    Step 7

    The final step in the output of the report is the use of two ALV functions modules.

    1. REUSE_ALV_FIELDCATALOG_MERGE

    2. REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY

    The first function module is used to pass the field catalog to the report output and merge it with the internal output table.

    FUNCTION reuse_alv_fieldcatalog_merge.

    EXPORTING

    I_PROGRAM_NAME = WS_REPNAME

    I_INTERNAL_TABNAME = Internal output table field name

    I_INCLNAME = WS_REPNAME

    CHANGING

    CT_FIELDCAT = I_FIELDTAB.

    IF SY-SUBRC <> 0.

    WRITE: 'SY-SUBRC: ', SY-SUBRC, 'REUSE_ALV_FIELDCATALOG_MERGE'.

    ENDIF.

    CALL FUNCTION 'REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY'

    EXPORTING

    I_CALLBACK_PROGRAM = WS_REPNAME

    I_STRUCTURE_NAME = Internal output table field name

    IS_LAYOUT = I_LAYOUT

    IT_FIELDCAT = I_FIELDTAB

    I_DEFAULT = 'A'

    I_SAVE = 'A'

    IS_VARIANT = 'X'

    IT_EVENTS = I_EVENTS[]

    IT_SORT = I_SORT

    IS_SEL_HIDE = I_SELINFO

    TABLES

    T_OUTTAB = Internal output table field name.

    IF SY-SUBRC <> 0.

    WRITE: 'SY-SUBRC: ', SY-SUBRC, 'REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY'.

    ENDIF

    THIS IS THE POP UP TO ALLOW THE USER TO DYNAMICALLY SELECT THE FIELDS FOR DISPLAY. HE CAN CHOOSE FROM THIS FIELDS ACC. TO REQUIREMENT AND HIDE THE OTHER FIELDS
