Saving a List

To save the displayed list, the user chooses List Save.

Saving the List in SAP Office

When the user chooses List Save Office, a dialog box appears that allows the user to either store the displayed list in the user's Office folder or send it to another user.

Saving the List in the Reporting Tree

When the user chooses List Save Reporting tree, a dialog box appears that allows the user to save the displayed list in the appropriate branch of the reporting tree.

Saving the List as Local File on the Presentation Server

When the user chooses List Save File, a dialog box appears that allows the user to store the displayed list in different formats as a local file.

The format options are:

        Unconverted: the system stores the file as a text file.

        Spreadsheet: the system inserts tabs between the columns.

        Rich Text Format: the system stores the data formatted for word processing.


If the user stores the standard list created in Structure of the Standard List in Rich text format, it can be edited in a word-processing program that can read this format.

Modifying List and Column Headers

Usually, you create and modify list and column headers as text elements (see Structure linkCreating and Changing List and Column Headers). However, you can also modify these headers while displaying the list on the screen. To do so, choose System List List header. The lines of the page header now accept input:

Use this function, for example, to position the column headers exactly above the columns of the displayed list.

Save your changes. The system stores the modified headers as text elements of the program in the text pool of the current logon language.

For more information on text elements, refer to the chapter Structure linkMaintaining Text Elements.
