Former Member

Hi all,

i want to use an empty ALV as an input area on the selection screen, i have created a new screen and new container with ALV in it, however i am facing following questions:

1. How do i display multiple rows (empty) available for the user to make entries?

2. I have tried filling the internal table(ALV) with blank spaces , i can see one row on the ALV but if i change some data on the ALV and try to see the changed data in Debugger i cannot see any values.

3. Is using ALV as an input area on the selection screen good option?

Please help me out.

wa_fieldcat-tabname = 'ITAB'.

wa_fieldcat-edit = 'X'.

wa_fieldcat-seltext_l = text.'.
