Interesting Problem - ALV Grid - Filtering

Hi Gurus,

I've an interesting problem.I didn't understand.I'll try to explain.I developed a report with alv grid ( reuse_alv_grid_display ) .In the report there is a "created by" column which has the user name who created the document.To filter this column i choose the column and press filtering button.The selection pop up appears.If i type the user name manually there is no problem.When i press f4, possible entries appears.But this possible entries are a little bit strange.

for example user names on the report shown as,





etc .

But on the f4 possible entries list they shown as,





etc .

it takes the character no of the shortest name ( for example 9 characters for "UserName1" ) and display all other names with first 9 characters ( for example "UserName4444" has 12 characters but it displays first 9 characters and show this name as "UserName4" ).

we have two systems, test and production.We develop reports on test and send to production by transport request.I mean this report is exactly same in two systems.I've this error in production system.In test system with same data, we don't have this works properly.

Does anyone have an idea for this?I know this is strange.

thanks all..

best regards,

Hi Burak,

i've faced a similar problem if not the same,

Check whether u've allotted sufficient value for your "OUTPUTLEN" field in the fieldcatalog as vijay has suggested even then if it does not work then fill the "EDIT_MASK" field of the fieldcatlog with the value "==ALPHA".
