Report painter - Choosing column heading text


I'm having a specific problem with getting the right column heading text into my G/L report painter report created in FGI2/FGI5. In the report painter form I have created the three texts for my column (short, medium and long text). In order for the heading to be meaningful I need the report to show the medium or long text. This is also the case when I run the report as object type Object list. Here the medium text is displayed. However, when I run the report as a Classic drilldown report or a Graphical report output the short column heading text is shown.

Now, I know from running the standard report 0SAPBLNCE-01 in FGI0 that it is possible to have the long column header text shown in the report, so I'm not willing to give up. But can any of you guys help me on how to make the report show the correct text?

Kind rgds

    Pls try this:

    In transaction for changing form (FGI5) go Formatting/Header text length and choose Medium text.

    I hope this will help you.

    Kind Regards

      Hi Anna and thanks for your suggestion. I have tried changing the header text length in the form as you suggested, but it does not seem to affect the display in neither of the three output types of the report. I assume that there must be a way to control the text header length specifically for each of the three output types. But how....
