How to display results of spool in ALV or download results to excel without columns being truncated?


Hello Everyone,

I have a report which when executed 'online' outputs the reults in a simple ALV grid.

There are ~15 columns displayed in the ALV result list.

However, in some situations i need to execute the report in background.

When i display the contents(results) of the spool list, then i notice that only the first 4-5 columns show up in 'Graphical display' mode.

The remaining columns are not displayed! Downloading the results also do not show all the columns.

Is there a way to display all the columns in the spool's 'Graphical display' mode?

I already tried to use the 'Hex format'. However this results in lot of post processing work when downloaded to an excel!

So what i am looking for is some tips on how to display all the columns of spool result display, or even better a way to view the results in an ALV grid.

Maybe there are some setting to display all columns which i am not able to figure out.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
