Download transparent table data in excel

Hi all

I have ECC 6.0 system. I have a transparent table with 112 fields. Sufficient amount of data is present in that table. I need to download this data into an excel file. But I found there are some inconsistencies:

1. I used SE16. But we know that list output of the SE16 screen is limited to 1023 characters. Hence all the columns are not displayed. In my case it is displaying only 52 columns. Eventhough if we download this using System->List->Save->Local File->Spreadsheet, only those 52 columns are displayed in excel. So this SE16 was out of option.

2. I used SE16n. Here I could see all the 112 columns in the screen. But if I go for Export->Local File->Spreadsheet , each row gets splitted into two rows in excel. Also last few columns are not downloaded. All in all, it is an incomplete download and is not readable. Hence this method is out of option.

3. I used a manual method. In SE16n I copied all the data to the clip board using Ctrl+A and pasted them in a new excel document. The data got copied fully and properly. But the header line was missing.

What could be the solution other than writing a separate ABAP program?

i tried with 190 field in VBRP table with the grid option and with the Spreadsheet button (CntrShiftF7).

My data was downloaded correctly with all coumns. There was no splitting.
