Hi all,

can anyone tell me how do i allow my field symbol to be printed out in alv?

my alv is a field symbol of type table.

the field symbol is declared as <f_fs4> type table.

inside this <f_fs4> it already contained a dynamic internal table. all i need is to put it in alv? can anyone tell me the code to it? thx!

Internal Tables are local tables within a program containing a series of lines having same data type.

ABAP Open SQL allows single field, range of fields, entire database table or view into an internal

table.

In technical terms Internal table is a dynamic sequential dataset in which all records have the same

data structure and a key.

A static internal table can be declared in an ABAP program initially, when the structure of the internal

table is fixed and known to the user.

Dynamic internal table is an extension to internal table concept, used when the number of fields is

not known at the design time or until the compile time.

Scenario 1:

Display the table of contents in grid format using the dynamic internal table.

Creating Dynamic internal table

PARAMETERS : p_table(10) TYPE C.

DATA: w_tabname TYPE w_tabname,

w_dref TYPE REF TO data,

w_grid TYPE REF TO cl_gui_alv_grid.

FIELD-SYMBOLS: <t_itab> TYPE ANY TABLE.

w_tabname = p_table.

CREATE DATA w_dref TYPE TABLE OF (w_tabname).

ASSIGN w_dref->* TO <t_itab>.

Populating Dynamic internal table

SELECT * FROM (w_tabname) UP TO 20 ROWS INTO TABLE <t_itab>.

Displaying dynamic internal table using Grid.

CREATE OBJECT w_grid

EXPORTING i_parent = cl_gui_container=>screen0.

CALL METHOD w_grid->set_table_for_first_display

EXPORTING

i_structure_name = w_tabname

CHANGING

it_outtab = <t_itab>.

CALL SCREEN 100.

Scenario 2:

Create a dynamic internal table with the specified number of columns.

Creating Dynamic internal table

TYPE-POOLS: slis.

FIELD-SYMBOLS: <t_dyntable> TYPE STANDARD TABLE, “ Dynamic internal table name

<fs_dyntable>, “ Field symbol to create work area

<fs_fldval> type any. “ Field symbol to assign values

PARAMETERS: p_cols(5) TYPE c. “ Input number of columns

DATA: t_newtable TYPE REF TO data,

t_newline TYPE REF TO data,

t_fldcat TYPE slis_t_fldcat_alv,

t_fldcat TYPE lvc_t_fcat,

wa_it_fldcat TYPE lvc_s_fcat,

wa_colno(2) TYPE n,

wa_flname(5) TYPE c.

  • Create fields .

DO p_cols TIMES.

CLEAR wa_it_fldcat.

move sy-index to wa_colno.

concatenate 'COL'

wa_colno

into wa_flname.

wa_it_fldcat-fieldname = wa_flname.

wa_it_fldcat-datatype = 'CHAR'.

wa_it_fldcat-intlen = 10.

APPEND wa_it_fldcat TO t_fldcat.

ENDDO.

  • Create dynamic internal table and assign to FS

CALL METHOD cl_alv_table_create=>create_dynamic_table

EXPORTING

it_fieldcatalog = t_fldcat

IMPORTING

ep_table = t_newtable.

ASSIGN t_newtable->* TO <t_dyntable>.

  • Create dynamic work area and assign to FS

CREATE DATA t_newline LIKE LINE OF <t_dyntable>.

ASSIGN t_newline->* TO <fs_dyntable>.

Populating Dynamic internal table

DATA: fieldname(20) TYPE c.

DATA: fieldvalue(10) TYPE c.

DATA: index(3) TYPE c.

DO p_cols TIMES.

index = sy-index.

MOVE sy-index TO wa_colno.

CONCATENATE 'COL'

wa_colno

INTO wa_flname.

  • Set up fieldvalue

CONCATENATE 'VALUE' index INTO

fieldvalue.

CONDENSE fieldvalue NO-GAPS.

ASSIGN COMPONENT wa_flname

OF STRUCTURE <fs_dyntable> TO <fs_fldval>.

<fs_fldval> = fieldvalue.

ENDDO.

  • Append to the dynamic internal table

APPEND <fs_dyntable> TO <t_dyntable>.

Displaying dynamic internal table using Grid.

DATA: wa_cat LIKE LINE OF fs_fldcat.

DO p_cols TIMES.

CLEAR wa_cat.

MOVE sy-index TO wa_colno.

CONCATENATE 'COL'

wa_colno

INTO wa_flname.

wa_cat-fieldname = wa_flname.

wa_cat-seltext_s = wa_flname.

wa_cat-outputlen = '10'.

APPEND wa_cat TO fs_fldcat.

ENDDO.

  • Call ABAP List Viewer (ALV)

CALL FUNCTION 'REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY'

EXPORTING

it_fieldcat = fs_fldcat

TABLES

t_outtab = <t_dyntable>.
