Reduce out put field length of alv output in back ground

Hi all,

Is there a way to reduce the output length of the field in back groundfor ALV out put

Its back ground

I have thsi things in my field catalog

wa_fieldcat-outputlen = 10.

wa_fieldcat-ddic_outputlen = 10.

If the field has value of length 10 characters its ok

but when the field has lenth of more than 10 characters

(say 20 char). in fore ground it displays 10 characters and then we can move the column to see full thing , but in back ground it displays 20 char.

In fact that is what i have to see because in background you cannot drag the column to see entire thing , but i want to cut short to 12 char even if i don't see the remaining thing its ok
