Preface

In the last article – SALV IDA – New Calculated Fields, we added couple of new columns in the ALV. Since these calculated fields are not part of the DB structure obviously they don’t have proper column headings. Lets try to make it better!

SALV IDA Columns Settings

Columns setting is being handled by the FIELD_CATALOG method. This provides the column object which has different methods. Here is the overview of the Column settings:

  • Use the method FIELD_CATALOG( ) to get back the column object
  • Every method as part of the Field catalog object, you can supply the Column Name in the specific method
  • Column Description
    • SET_FIELD_HEADER_TEXTS
    • SET_DATA_ELEMENT

  • Currency and UOM related methods
    • SET_CURRENCY_REFERENCE_FIELD
    • SET_FIXED_CURRENCY
    • SET_FIXED_UNIT
    • SET_UNIT_REFERENCE_FIELD

  • Disable methods
    • DISABLE_SORT
    • DISABLE_FILTER
    • DISABLE_AGGREGATION

  • Text Search – ENABLE_TEXT_SEARCH
