Runtime Error CONNE_IMPORT_WRONG_COMP_LENG In Method CL_SALV_BS_RUNTIME_INFO=>GET_DATA

Symptom

While executing the report, you run into runtime error CONNE_IMPORT_WRONG_COMP_LENG (Exception CX_SY_IMPORT_MISMATCH_ERROR) in Method CL_SALV_BS_RUNTIME_INFO=>GET_DATA.

Reason

One of the fields in the ALV data table is defined with of ABAP type C with length greater than 255 characters.
e.g.
field1(1000) TYPE c.
The problem doesn't occur while using type from DDIC (Dictionary).

The dump occurs in case at least one of data table's fields (even fields which aren't available in ALV field catalog) is of type C (CHAR) with length greater than 255.
In such case, when ALV data is imported, corresponding field is created as CHAR 255 instead of actual field's length, what leads to structure inconsistency issues..
The problem results from bug in method CL_SALV_BS_DDIC->DESCRIBE_ELEMENT (which is called by cl_salv_bs_ddic=>create_data_from_components): When field isn't from DDIC, ls_dfies-leng is set as lr_elemdescr->output_length, which is limited to 255 chars (Check note 777826 - "Output length of data elements with more than 255 characters").
The problem doesn't occur when field type is from DDIC (i.e. Data element or table field).


Solution

Replace the definition of the field to DDIC (data element/table field) instead of simple ABAP type.
e.g. 
field1 TYPE text1000.
