LISTCUBE replacement : a new way to display data



If you are tired of see this popup when trying to display a provider content, you have now a fresh solution : ZLISTCUBE

This program is designed to replace standard LISTCUBE and do almost all LISTCUBE does :

– Display content of any infoprovider, as well as listcube does

– Choose dynamically selection fields you want to use

– Select dynamically which field you want to display

– Filter on key figure value
– Save or Load selection variant
– Use ALV display variant

– Export infoprovider content to file (local/server)
It could be batched and is a very easy solution to export data
from BW to another system
If you dont specify any excluded field, nav attribute will also
be kept in the file (but always empty) : file format used by import
– Load infocube directly from file (local/server)
Import file must have the same structure as complete export file
with nav attributes
You can use the filter field to define restriction displayed in
Infoprovider management window for the load

– Extract huge amount of data by using serialization & server file
– If a complex query is not managed, you can switch to the standard
listcube directly from selection screen


Instructions is given in the header of the program to replace standard listcube by this one, but you can use the program as a standalone specific if you prefer.

And there is a direct download link (remember that you will need SAPLINK to install) :

      Dear Sébastien,


      I tried this in an ECC6 Ehp7 IDES and it dumps because RSDRC_INFOPROV_READ does not exist in the system. However, it exists in an ECC6 Ehp6 IDES system. Do you know if this is already obsolete? There is another FM called RSDRI_INFOPROV_READ which is very similar. Can this be used instead?

      You can't easilly use RSDRI* instead of RSDRC* FM. But, I found class
      SPAN {
      font-family: "Courier New";
      font-size: 10pt;
      color: #000000;
      background: #FFFFFF;
      cl_rsdrc_infoprov  which seem to replace the FM RSDRC 🙂

      I will update the link during the day.


      But, to tell the truth, i do not use this program anymore. Why ? Because there is a standard program that fit far better to my dreams : transaction RSRT

      You can query any provider directly in RSRT by using this syntax in the "query" field : PROVIDER/!PROVIDER


      For example, you want to query 0IC_C03 cube ? type 0IC_C03/!0IC_C03

      You want to query masterdata 0MATERIAL ? type 0MATERIAL/!0MATERIAL


      Of course, you can also use third party tool like analysis for office, if allowed by your licence 😉
