    one of the most common question 😊

    so, put a column "count" with "1" at each line

    sum the line

    and make a intermediate sum in the column CARRID

    Hope you have completed the rest of the report correctly. In the fieldcatalog of carrid add the following line.

    ls_fieldcat-do_sum       = 'X'.

    When you will add this parameter it show automatically show you the sum at the end.

    If you face any issues, do let us know. 😊

      I have actually did all the select statements and got the records.....What i require is the count of the records.

      From SFLIGHT table i want to fetch CARRID's in selection screen using SELECT-OPTIONS.

      Then for these CARRID's i have obtained.......I want to display the no:of records available for each CARRID in an ALV.

      ex : CARRID : AA,AZ,LH                                 *This in selection screen


      AA - 30     * These should be shown in an ALV

      AZ - 40

      LH - 36

      Kindly send me a code Snippet which works for this requirement.

    Hi Hari,

    Are you asking the total number of records after fetching from the table.

    This is what i understood from your question.If yes, you can use the "Describe table" statement to achieve the same.

      Hi hari,

      After fetching all the records into an internal table, sort the internal table by "Carrid".

      Loop at the internal table and by using if or while statement you can put some logic to count the records.

      For example, if the records are in internal table IT, then loop at this and count the number of records according to carrid.

      sort it by carrid.
         loop at it into wa.
           if wa-carrid = 'AA'.
             cnt_aa = cnt_aa + 1.
           elseif wa-carrid = 'AZ'.
            cnt_az = cnt_az + 1.

      The variables cnt_aa will hold the total number of records for carrid "AA" and variable cnt_az will hold for carrid "AZ.

      This logic should work.

      Hope this helps.

    create the container and try the below code.


    data: g_alv1  TYPE REF TO cl_gui_alv_grid,
            c_cont1 TYPE REF TO cl_gui_custom_container.

    data: it_fieldcat TYPE lvc_t_fcat ,
             ty_fieldcat TYPE lvc_s_fcat ,

             it_mara type table of mara,

            wa_mara like line of it_mara.

    select-options:s_matnr for mara-matnr.


    select * from mara into it_mara

                     where matnr in s_matnr.

    CALL SCREEN 100.


    *& Module pbo_100 OUTPUT
    MODULE pbo_100 OUTPUT.
    *set pf-status 'XXX'.
    *set titlebar 'XXX'.

    *& Module alv_100 OUTPUT

    MODULE alv_100 OUTPUT.
    *Check if there is no custom container in screen 100
      IF c_cont1 IS INITIAL.
    *Creating object of container
        CREATE OBJECT c_cont1
           container_name = 'CCONT'.

    *Creating object of alv
        CREATE OBJECT g_alv1
            i_parent = c_cont1.

    data:lv_count type i.

    *- count the total no of records going to display

    describe the it_mara lines into lv_count.

    *Displaying the ALV grid
        CALL METHOD c_alv1->set_table_for_first_display
            is_layout       = ty_lay1
            it_outtab       = it_mara
            structure       = mara.
