ALV vs Table Control

Hi All,

Could someone please tell me whether ALV is faster or Table Control. I mean for processing. The features required are Colouring cell, Adding checkbox in cell, adding a link in cell etc.

I know that this is possible in ALV, but no idea whether it could be done in table control. Please throw some light on this.

Please let me know the reasons behind one being faster than another.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Hi Prashant,

Actually ALVs and Table controls are used in totally different contexts , one in reporting and the other in module pool programming.So, there is very little sense in comparing them.

If you talk about speeds, ALVs are indeed faster and are to be used to display large number of records in a table format.

Whereas if the requirement is to update data to the database through a transaction, use a table control.
