Hi,

Maximum number of characters per field is upto 256 characters, remaining chracters will be truncated when you download to excel

Hi ajit,

   there might be some field in your table which will have '#'  or " at some place...data get truncated from there...you can even check manually ...if you copy past that truncated line from alv output to excel truncation will still be there....so try to remove '#' or "  from the fields .. then it will get downloaded properly..

Hi Ajit ,

The best way to handle this is to display that col. in multiple rows..

As you cant donwload more thn 256+ char.

you can split the content into parts , Display it in multiple rows.( just to Display in ALV )

So when you download it will be perfectly fine.

Thanks & Regards,
