Preset cells with values when adding new lines - AUTO_VALUE

0 Kudos

If the indicator AUTO_VALUE is set in the field catalog and a new row is appended or inserted, the ALV Grid Control copies the value of the previous row to this column. This applies also to columns that are not editable. This allows the user to enter new data more quickly.

If no previous column exists, the field in the new row remains initial. And that is exactly my problem.

How can I preset a cell with a default value when adding a new line in an INITIAL ALV Grid where no previous column exists using the standard function buttons (ADD, COPY)?

An example would be very helpful.

Thanks and regards.

I've got the same problem.

I would give an default posnr to my alv-application (10,20,30), after presing the append-button.

The attribute 'auto_value' just copies the former values.

Please help me too

r u using oops alv,

if so, u can handle that in data changed. because append row is caught only in data changed event.

so u can give some default values there.
