Displaying a multi-line text block in an ALV grid cell

Former Member

Can I display a multi-line text block (i.e. a paragraph of text) in an ALV grid cell?

If yes, what properties do I set in the Field Catalaog (I tried the style and that didnt seem to work)

Thanks

Hi Paul

It is not possible. But; you can split the text and form multiple lines containing same values for all fields other than the text field and each splitted part at the text field. By default ALV Grid merges fields with same values vertically.

Isn't that only when the column is part of the sort key? You also have to consider the user changing the sort sequence, which can make the text jumbled up. In one of my reports I have made the cell a hotspot and displayed the text in a popup. Of course you cannot print it.
