Field status group

Determines the screen layout for document entry.

Fields can have the following statuses:

Optional entry - you can enter data in the field

Mandatory entry - you must enter data in the field

Suppressed - the field does not appear on the screen


Enter the field status group in the master record of a G/L account. When you enter a document, the definitions stored for the group are effective.


The field status when you create a document also depends on the posting key.

The field status groups available are those grouped together in a field status variant and assigned to your company code.

FSG reduces the data to be entered at the time of posting a document by way of spcifying the fields for each group separately.
