Downloading internal tables to Excel
Submitted by Harini Gopinath, Hexaware Technologies.
Often we face situations where we need to download internal table contents onto an Excel sheet. We are familiar with the function module WS_DOWNLOAD. Though this function module downloads the contents onto the Excel sheet, there cannot be any column headings or we cannot differentiate the primary keys just by seeing the Excel sheet.
For this purpose, we can use the function module XXL_FULL_API. The Excel sheet which is generated by this function module contains the column headings and the key columns are highlighted with a different color. Other options that are available with this function module are we can swap two columns or supress a field from displaying on the Excel sheet. The simple code for the usage of this function module is given below.
