ALV - Export to Excel - Columns with cell variants not getting exported



When we try to 'Export to Excel' from the ALV, the column's assigned with cell variants are not getting exported. It throws an error saying "Column <Name> contains cell variants and cannot be exported". It displays Message No. SALV_BS_MSG201

Note 1399946 (WD ABAP ALV: column with cell variants is not exported) says "No solution available". We are using SAP NetWeaver 7.00 and on which Support Package 20 is installed, which made this option to be disabled.

Can this be achieved by uninstalling support package 20 ? If so, what will be the impact on other objects/components ? Any workaround possible ?
