Field status 'display' in ME21N and ME22N
Would like to have the storage location field display mode in ME21N and ME22N
Which minimum filed selection keys to be set for this.
I have done for several keys but not achieving this.

There is a sequence how SAP is checking
2) activity type
3) document type
4) item category
5) functional authorization
6) sub item
SAP starts with the field selection for the transaction
and builds a kind of summary together with the field selection of activity type
1. key + 2. key = result
mandatory + mandatory = mandatory
mandatory + optional = mandatory
mandatory + display = display
mandatory + suppressed = suppressed
optional + mandatory = mandatory
optional + optional = optional
optional + display = display
optional + suppressed = suppressed
display + mandatory = display
display + optional = display
display + display = display
display + suppressed = suppressed
suppressed + any key = suppressed
then it takes this summary and adds the 3rd for document type to get a new summary,
after that it uses this summary and adds the 4th key for item category to get again a new summary.
And the last summary defines how the field appears to you.
I did a very small test in my IDES system, I only needed to make the NBF storage location field "display" and it became display, since the storage location field is nowhere suppressed (this can be assumed as it is visible in your transaction, and any combination with suppressed result in suppressed )and any other combination with "display" setting results in "display".
However, I am not sure if you really want it that way.
Because for normal purchase order is will become as well display only, as Inter-company and normal purchase orders use both NB.
Looking at the item category does not help either, as it is 0 and as well identical with the usual item categories in normal NB orders
What remains? a new document type for Inter-Company to separate it from NB
