Not able to copy Data Dictionary reference Label as Column Header for Table Control in Screen Programming

Hello All ,

I am creating a Table Control and for data to be populated in the Table Control am declaring a Work Area with reference to Data Dictionary object , so containing all valid Label text for each fields in their corresponding Data Elements.

But when I am referencing this Work Area to this Table Control using "Get from Program" button , Text radiobutton is showing deactivated.

So for this reasons I am not able to use Data Elements Label as Column heading.

Table is active in DDIC , an earlier Screen Program has also been done the same way , in that program DDIC label is picking.

I am not able to figure out whats wrong.

I suppose the data are imported from dictinary

For example I've declared a table in my program:

DATA: BEGIN OF ITAB OCCURS 0,

         BUKRS LIKE T001-BUKRS,

         BUTXT LIKE T001-BUTXT,

       END   OF ITAB.

So if I wan to use it as headerline of table control in order to get the attributies of dictionary, if I try to import data from ITAB, i can't insert the label

So I can use directly T001:

and so I replace the name:

In this way the field points to ITAB, but the header still points to T001 (so dictionary):
