Hi all,

How to get the custom field heading when we export to XLS using the standard Functionality/button available in ALV grid to export to spread sheet.

I mean is there anything in ALV field catalog /something by which we can have our custom heading , the way we do in ALV grid output using the button available to do export .

Note: I am not talking about any FM , its the standrad button available in ALV grid by which we can do export to spread sheet , currently its taking the small text of the data element field level.

Modify your fieldcatelog before calling the grid display FM. Remove data element reference (ref_fieldname) and change ddictxt, seltext_s, seltext_m and seltext_l fields to the text you want.

Dataelement texts can be found in table DD04T.
