International Editable SALV Day
On the 8th of February 2008 James Hawthorne started the discussion (link above) as to why SAP does not give the CL SALV TABLE the option to be editable, as CL GUI ALV GRID is.
There is no need to re-iterate why this would be a good thing, it is blindingly obvious.
As can be seen from the thread a very large number of ABAP programmers support this idea, indeed I would be amazed if even one, anywhere in the world, outside of SAP development, would NOT think this would be good.
I wanted to post a reply to this thread, but in a bitter twist of irony, that thread is no longer editable, rather like the SALV itself.
I propose that in recognition of the long standing campagn on this issue, that the day that discussion was first posted, the 8th of February, be declared "International Editable SALV Day". This year, 2014, was it's sixth birthday, and it will be aged seven before you know it.
I have made a note in my diary to post a blog on the 8th of February 2015 celebrating this day, and I encourage any other supporters of this scheme to do likewise. Ater another twnety years of this, who knows? SAP might start listening to the developer base.
