Download ALV result list as excel-file in background job

Dear Experts,

I am looking for a possibily to download the result of an ALV based report as excel-file in a background job. Surely there is a standard function which can be used or at least some hints how to implement this. I searched the forum but couldn't find a thread which was covering this problem exactly.

Thanks in advance

    Dear Mr. Krapf,

    it is possible to output an ALV list to an Excel file in the background but there are some limitations.

    Please consider the following notes:

    #7925 Graphics, Upload, Download do not work in backgrnd

    #65050 Data types and file formats in files (DATASET)

    #145073 - FAQ Report Writer: Excel download

    #569537 - Incorrect data during import into Excel

    #590126 Sending CSV documents up to Release 4.6

    Please be aware that they are all Basis notes. So for more information you might ask in the Basis SDN Forum.

    Best regards, Christin Angus
