Hi Santosh,

As i understood you want to change the columns headers and if this is right then you can make use of CL_SALV_WD_COLUMN_HEADER class to achieve it.

1. get the ref to all the columns

data: lt_columns type salv_wd_t_column_ref.

data: ls_column type salv_wd_s_column_ref.

lt_columns = lo_value->if_salv_wd_column_settings~get_columns().

2. read the column you want to add custom header

loop at lt_columns into ls_column.

case ls_column-id.

when 'MATNR'.

data lr_col_header type ref to cl_salv_wd_column_header.

lr_col_header = ls_column-r_column->create_header().

lr_col_header->set_text('Test Header').



this will set the column header as "test header" for the field matnr.
