Dear Friends, is it possible to hide/remove the small blocks which appear before the numeric columns (which are totaled)? Please suggest.

Hi,

The dots represent the summation level of each subtotal in order to give the user context for each sum. I don't believe you can omit them since that would decrease the user's understanding of the sums.

Cheers,
Amy

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I agree with you but the challenge is, it is occupying too much of space and I need to increase the width to show the numeric values. This is the reason I tried to omit them.

With regards,

Vijayakrishna

Vijay,

Did you set the below mentioned field in your ALV Fieldcatalog ?

colwidth_optimize = 'X'.

Hi Vijay,

"it is occupying too much of space and I need to increase the width to show the numeric values. 

The number of dots are appearing based on subtotal category specified/selected in ALV. And by default the width can be optimized by using SET_OPTIMIZE method(OOABAP) or colwidth_optimize attribute if you are using ALV FM.

If you want to decrease the number of Square dots, one possible way is to instead of selecting all the columns, select the last one as shown below

And the output will be same with difference as single dot(square) in total like below.
