    The value of that field is changed in the internal table which you've passed to the ALV. For example is internal table I_PROPERTY has a field IS_REQUIRED that you've made a dropdown in your ALV for that internal table, than each row of I_PROPERTY will have the value in column IS_REQUIRED that the user has selected in the ALV for that row.

    See example programs BCALV_EDIT_06 and BCALV_EDIT_07 for a good implementation of ALV dropdowns.

      Hi Karthik,

      Most importantly the filed's domain have check box called Lower case. It must be checked.

      If the user input dropdown field passes it in upper letter to variable use case statement in program itself before insert in table.

      For example, You have two value Required, Not-Required. You get the value as REQUIRED, NON-REQUIRED. Use case statement here.

      CASE <Variable name>.


      <workarea filed name> = 'Required'.


      <workarea field name> = 'Non-Required'.


      INSERT <database table name> FROM <workarea>.

      Hope it helps.
