I am displaying a report using "REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY".The report has more than 100 columns.When i click "Download to local" icon,the

result file i get (either txt/xls/htm/doc) does not contain all the data in the report.I don't know the reason.Can anyone help me in this regard?

Hi colin,

My client insits on using the 'Download to local ' icon.

BTW,for the moment i have solved the problem partially.My program

used a structure existing in dictinory as a field catelogue.Then additional fields were appended to the

catelogue.When i debugged the program,i found that the download option was working fine,if the additional fields

are not appended dynamically.So i commented the code that

creates additional fields.Instead i created those additional fileds in the dictionary structure itself.

Now the download option is working fine.

But i still couldn't find the reason for it to not work,when fields were added dynamically using ABAP code.

Any way thanks for your suggestion.

Do not use the Download to local icon - I've had similiar problems using this with an extra wide report.

Use this method instead :

1.From the menu select List -> Export -> Spreadsheet

2. An information message will then be displayed which can be ignored as the report is a simple list only

3. You will then be presented with a pop-up window to decide the processing mode. Select the middle option Table

4. Finally, you will then be presented with another pop-up window with only one option for Microsoft Excel. Press <ENTER> to export to Excel

Eh voila - all your data should be displayed correctly in Excel.

Let me know if this works. If it does, please award the pooints as so few people do
