Difference between Secoundary and Detailed Lists

Former Member

Dear Friends,

I have a coupe of questions.

1. Does Secondary List and Detailed List mean the same.

2. How many Secoundary/detailed lists can we have ? Is it 19 or 20. In SAP Library in some places it is given as 19 and in other places as 20. Please have a look at the lines below from SAP Library

Thanks,

Rajesh

With one ABAP program, you can maintain one basic list and up to 20 detail lists.(As per SAP library, BC - ABAP Programming-> ABAP User Dialogs->Lists->Interactive Lists->Detail Lists)

You can create up to 19 detail lists for a single basic list.(As per SAP library, BC - ABAP Programming-> ABAP User Dialogs->Lists)

Lists are the output medium for structured, formatted data from ABAP programs. Each program can produce up to 21 lists, one basic list and 20 secondary lists. ( As per SAP library, BC - ABAP Programming-> ABAP User Dialogs->Lists->Creating Lists->Creating Complex Lists )

its 0 to 19...0 being the basic list

so that makes it 20

the list index can be known through sy-lsind system variable.

Hi,

No secondary list and basic list are not same...Secondary list will give detailed information compared to basic list..For example..

the report output gives material numbers is basic list..If want detail information say for that material u want some other information,then that can be displayed on secondary list.

there can be 20 secondary lists and only one basic list..So over all its 21.

Reward points if u find useful
