How to Activate the Save option from the Menu drop down option?

Former Member

There is a module pool program, executing which shows a display of some data in a listed format.

I want to save the data in excel file. How do I do that?

There is an option in the menu bar: System>List>Save>Local file . Here the "Local file" option is disabled.

Even right clicking on the data, is not giving the option called save as spreadsheet.

Please suggest what to do?

I guess you have no authorization to download sap data into Local File. Consult with your basis guy to solve this problem.

Hi Karthik,

Its not a basis problem I have asked our basis team. If that is not the problem , then what is it?

Is there any solution from the programimng end?

So what program you are trying to download, standard or Zprogram?

If it is for a particular program i guess you can code separate logic to download the list data. But if it is not the case i am sure you are not authorized.

To test you can run different reports and check using your username as well as some other username with SAP_ALL.
