ALV List - More than 1023 char. Scroll to right

Hi Experts,

I'm creating an ALV list report, when the output is more than 1023 characters, the list continues on the next line and this is what I want to avoid.

Is it possible to use the Scroll to Right command to limit the ALV list to 1023 per line at maximum, and when the row exceeds 1023, then users need to press the scroll to right/left button to see more columns at each rows.

If not then, what is usually the solution to writing more than 1023 characters in ALV list?

Thank you & Regards.

    my experience is that usually a specific user needs specific information only (less than 1023 characters).

    So I let them create personalized display variants they can enter on the selection screen.

    1023 characters is the limit of any ABAP list (not limited to ALV).

    ABAP list is only required if it's a ALV hierarchical-sequential list. Otherwise, you may use the ALV grid control (SALV for instance).

    If your report is more than 1023 characters wide then it is unusable. Redesign it if possible by using drilldowns etc
