Field Status - Making a field optional

On the vendor posting (posting key 31), we want to display the PLANT field and make it an optional entry.

We have changed the Field Status Group that is assigned to this reconciliation account (on the GL Account Master Record) to have the PLANT optional. We have the posting key '31' Field Status marked as optional. However, on this posting, the PLANT fields still does not appear. Does it have something to do with the fact that this is a RECONCILIATION account? How do I get the PLANT field to appear on the document line item for the vendor?

    Hi Bonnie

    You might be correct as it recon account. My suggestion would be that you change only in the posting key 31 and not in the GL FSG.

    Hope this works for you

    Thanks

    No, that did not work. The field that I want available on the screen (via transaction F-43 or similar) is BSEG-WERKS.

    Do you have any other ideas?

    Did you make Reconciliation account has a field status group in the Gl master, Did u make the Plant field optional in there . Try that instead of posting key.
