As far I know,you have to do it manually.

Check this link for sample ALV programs.

Hi Nitin,

As had been mentioned, I don't think there's a utility to convert the normal list to an ALV list. But here are some pointers to consider before you begin doing that -

1. You must first verify that the report output you have can indeed be converted into an ALV format. In case you have a lot of write statements, then you may have to think a bit before you go for the ALV format, as the look and feel will definitely change.

2. Consider how you're going to handle the TOP-OF-PAGE, END-OF-PAGE and other events as may exist in your report.

3. Verify of your report will be scheduled in the background and if the output is going to be issued to the spool immediately.

4. If you're new to ALV programming, then you must consider using the OO-Approach rather than the Function Module approach.

5. Decide whether you're going to use ALV List or an ALV Grid.

6. And lastly, there's this <a href="https://www.sdn.sap.comhttp://www.sdn.sap.comhttp://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/webas/abap/an%20easy%20reference%20for%20alv%20grid%20control.pdf">excellent document by Serder</a> on ALV which you might want to keep at hand for most of the functionalities that you may need for your ALV.

And since ALV is a very popular topic in here, many questions have been asked and successfully answered. Please make a post only after you search the forum for your question and find that it has not been asked and/or answered.
