Max. no of columns in ALV Excel download

I've a problem regarding the download of data from alv report's that have more than 99 columns.

I have searched the forum but couldn't find a right answer.

It is being done by standard option and not by custom functionality is there any way where we can increase this limitation.

    I don't know if there is a way it for more columns using that function. But I suggest you to use excel inplace tool. With excel inplace users directly display and maintain values in SAP screen and they can save final document without any limits I think. Just go to change layout-> view and choose microsoft excel. To be able to display excel using this option macro security in installed MS Excel should be in low and VB script execution must be on.

    Hi,

    The simple list display of the ALV (ALV classic) can only display 99 fields (columns). Since the ALV classic is the basis for printing and download, only 99 columns are available here as well. The ALV Grid Control can display more than 99 columns.So go for the ALV Grid Control than ALV Classic,

    .

    Thanks,

    LN
