In Se51 give the report name and screen number and click change button.

In the field attributes of the field SET the OUTPUT ONLY CHECKBOX.

Thats it.

Hi ,

I tried that , but since it is a SAP standard program , I cant edit it .

Is there any other way to do this

If it is a standard SAP prog then you can't change it directly. You need to get the key to do any modification
