    Hi,

    There is as such no difference between them.They will only differ functionality wise.

    Hi,

    There are two ways of reporting List report and alv report.

    the normal write statement usage gives us a listt report.

    But ALV report offers a good asthetic report output. It almost function as your Excel File .

    You can do many functions Total ,Subtotaling,sorting,filtering,

    etc.

    There two ways to do ALV report i.e. using function module REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY and using OOPS concept.

    Hi,

    On a more serious note I wud say:

    When u use an ALV FM....the whole control of ur output screen goes to ALV, i.e, whatever u wish to display (headers, comments, selection data, etc) shud be through ALV.....u cannot use any statement like WRITE:/ in the same screen where u r using ALV.
