Make "Reference Document" field as mandatory in Confirmation

Hi Experts,

I have a requirement in confirmation to make "Reference Document" field as mandatory. I have done the config and able to see ' * ' (mandatory) in the reference document field in confirmation. However, system is not validating for entry in that field, I am able to save or post the confirmation w/o the entry in the reference document field.

Version: SRM 7.0 SP05 with EP

SPRO -> SRM Server -> Cross Appl... -> Extension and Field Control (Personalization) -> Configure Field Control -> Configure Control for Fields on Header Level --> Metadata for Fields on Document Headers

Structure Field Name : REF_DOC_NO

Bus. Object Type : BUS2203

Bus. Object Subtype : CF

Transaction Type : CONF

Field Visible : X

Field Enabled : X

Field Required : X

Please advice.

Hi Siiva,

This is a completely correct conclusion. SAP however states that although you can now mark fields as required as per your configuration there isn't anything controlling the fact that this actually a required field. For this you still, as in previous releases, need to configure some sort of doccheck via an implementation of the BBP_DOC_CHECK_BADI.

Kind regards,
