    Its fairly unusual that peopel want to do custom sort within ALV. That is one of the values of the ALV is that complex, multi-column sorting is already buit in. Therefore there aren't extra events (as in the normal table UI element) for manually handling the sorting.

    • It really isn't recommended to place currency and currency code into the same column. Not only does this cause the sorting problem you found, but would also make total/sub total very difficult as well. I'm sure this also impacts export to Excel and Crystal Reports. There are some good reasons why we keep the two separate within standard SAP.
