Create a Simple SAP ALV Report

An ALV report is created using the standard function modules provided by SAP.

An ALV report can be created using the following steps.

  • Include SLIS type pool – SLIS type pool contains all the data types required by ALV function modules.
  • Data retrieval – Code the logic to fetch the data from database table into an Internal Table.
  • Build Field Catalog – Add the columns into an internal that you want to display in the ALV output list.
  • Pass the data table and field catalog table to ALV function module
TYPE-POOLS: slis.  " SLIS contains all the ALV data types

*&---------------------------------------------------------------------*

DATA: it_sbook     TYPE TABLE OF sbook.
DATA: it_fieldcat  TYPE slis_t_fieldcat_alv,
      wa_fieldcat  TYPE slis_fieldcat_alv.

*Fetch data from the database
  SELECT * FROM sbook INTO TABLE it_sbook.

*Build field catalog
  wa_fieldcat-fieldname  = 'CARRID'.    " Fieldname in the data table
  wa_fieldcat-seltext_m  = 'Airline'.   " Column description in the output
  APPEND wa_fieldcat TO it_fieldcat.

  wa_fieldcat-fieldname  = 'CONNID'.
  wa_fieldcat-seltext_m  = 'Con. No.'.
  APPEND wa_fieldcat TO it_fieldcat.

  wa_fieldcat-fieldname  = 'FLDATE'.
  wa_fieldcat-seltext_m  = 'Date'.
  APPEND wa_fieldcat TO it_fieldcat.

  wa_fieldcat-fieldname  = 'BOOKID'.
  wa_fieldcat-seltext_m  = 'Book. ID'.
  APPEND wa_fieldcat TO it_fieldcat.

  wa_fieldcat-fieldname  = 'PASSNAME'.
  wa_fieldcat-seltext_m  = 'Passenger Name'.
  APPEND wa_fieldcat TO it_fieldcat.

*Pass data and field catalog to ALV function module to display ALV list
  CALL FUNCTION 'REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY'
    EXPORTING
      it_fieldcat   = it_fieldcat
    TABLES
      t_outtab      = it_sbook
    EXCEPTIONS
      program_error = 1
      OTHERS        = 2.
