Hi Vikrant,

This is really a technical limitation of Abap list export to local file.

ALV Grid > 1023 characters per line will be split into 2 lines.

To prevent a line break occurring when you download the list as a local spreadsheet file, you must reduce the width of the list in the ALV.

You can do this either by hiding columns, or by changing the column widths in the ALV. Please see details in note below:
