    Hi Ivan,
    a great project and an excellent work, even the text diagonally …. I thought that it was enough to turn the paper by 45° into the printer…… 😉

        Hi Ivan,

        I am very interested in abap2xlsx. However, I found that I cannot access to code exchange? How can I get the permission? Thanks.

    You may want to check out SAPMiniApps, you can sell some of the code you create on the site. You can even host your project their and have control over who has access.
