Impact due to (SAPKE50037), we are on ECC 5.0
After the application of the Support Pack (SAPKE50037), there are
unwanted changes in the IT 0006 subtype 4. The State and and Zipcode
fields are mandatory. The business wants to revert back to the original
configuration, where only the Telephone number was required.
We noticed a change in the program where there is an additional check
added for USA,
(if country = USA, then the state and zip field mandatory)
I had this response from SAP:
<i>Development has told me that a change was made to the note and the
latest version should be downloaded and applied.
SAP Note No. 1075428 Version 4 from 24.10.2007</i>
After carefully studying the
note, i realized that the note would do exactly opposite to what the
requirement is. We want to revert back to the original setting where
only the telephone number was required and state and zipcode should not
be mandatory fields. We are getting this hard error "State is a required field" which explains our current situation.

Hi SAP HR,
The note 1075428 was updated on 12/14 with a source code change directing it to do a check on the infotype for subtype 1 and then to proceed with the additional check it was performing which caused all the problems. If you reapply 1075428 to your system, it should take on the additional code corrections that were attached. As with you, our issue was that we did not require the address information for our subtype 4 records, hence the irrelevent hard stop on address state, zip, etc info. Our business did require this info on subtype 1 so it was not a problem for the check to be in place on that subtype. I still stand by the fact that this is why screen control via T588M is in place for these kind of requirement checks on fields and our responding OSS message advised further review of the correction as opposed to this additional check on subtype, but it did correct our issue.
Hope that helps, all the best!
