Does anyone know how to properly configure additional values for the Block ID drop down field on the ME51N/52N Line Item 'Status' tab? This is the field labelled "Block ID" and is screen field "MEREQ3316-BLCKD" (EBAN-BLCKD?) It is linked to MEREQ3316-BLCKT (in that when a user blocks a req line item, SAP requires that a reason is entered in BLCKT.) The two drop downs currently available in BLCKD are "Not Blocked" and "Blocked by Requester." Our client would like to add "Blocked by Purchasing," but we cannot figure out how. Any help would be appreciated.

There is no way to define further indicators. the indicators are domain values and adding more values is a) a modification and b) there might not be any program logic to deal with it and c) it might even result in unexpected system behavior as the programs just expect SAP's defined domain values and no others.
