Required Text Field for automatically generated line items

Hi Experts,

I have noticed that when additional line items is automatically generated by SAP, the line item text field becomes required for those items. This happens regardless of the configuration made in the field status group....

For example, when posting cross company code transactions using account assignment model, the balancing entries (automatically generated by SAP) requires an input for text field. The same scenario happened when I run F-58 in background (BDC), and there are additional line items in my entry.

Can you please share some insights on SAP's behavior. And is it possible to turn it off?

Thank you.

1st check out the configuration for text filed that whether it has been set mandatory in the following FSG

1.... Field status groups which we assign to Recon Accounts of customer--OBC4

2..... Posting keys---OB41

3....... Field status group for Customer account group

SPRO>> FA>> AP & AR>> Customer Acct >> Master Data >>Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data Define Acct Groups with Screen Layout(Customers)

See if it has been set mandatory there. Revert back in case issue is not resolved.
