ALV Columns


Hi! I have a problem with the ALV columns in 4.7 extension set 2.0.

The columns on my ALV report appear to be automatically re-sizing themselves whenever the report is printed from the list view. This never used to happen in the past, even if I had enabled the "Optimize columns" on the "View" tab on the saved version of the grid view layout. You could size the columns in the list view (to get a predictable record length for printing purposes) and they would stay that way. My user says the print problems associated with this column re-sizing started happening in mid-February. The user's issue is if the columns grow and the total record length exceeds 170, SAP automatically changes the printing page format from X_58_170 to X_65_200 and the resulting printout becomes difficult to read. Is there a way to correct this?

Thanks in advance!
