i was working on an report and i had to use the Exception function of the ALV list output. After reasearching i didn't find an proper document that summarizes the Exception groups and the exception funktion of ALV list ouputs. So i created one that i want to share with you.
Exception Column in ALV Lists
In the context of the ALV list output there are several cell graphics that can be displayed by using the so called Exceptions. These Exceptions are sorted into several groups. For an output of an Exception column you have to define an output column of the type CHAR. This columns normally holds a single value. In the following tables you can see which value has to be set for the several exception groups for each row/node of the output. Also you have to set the exception column on the ALV object by calling the method SET_EXCEPTION that needs the column name of the output structure and the exception group..
