how to make material code field mandatory in VA01

Dear all,

I want to make material code field mandatory while creating sales order (VA01). As of now even if I dont enter material code , and just enter customer code and P.O. number , I am able to save my sales order.

I tried to do it with incompletion log , but could not succeed.

SHD0 could be an option, is there any simpler way out ?

Please suggest.

Regards,

      Hi

      You have to create the transaction variant in the t code SHD0 for the t code (VA01) and then make the material field mandotory and then save

      After that do the belwo

      1.Activate the transaction variant by going to standard variant tab page .

      2.Assign the transaction variant to the order type in the t code VOV8

    Hi,

    You have 2 options.

    1 - Incompletion Log

    If you add Material filed to your incompletion log, then when you try to save the sales order it'll give the "Save / Edit" pop up message. But then by pressing Save button you can save the sales order.

    If you want to avoid that pop up; do this. (To avoid user saving Incomplete sales orders)

    Go to VOV8 Tx.

    Go in to your sales document type

    Under "Transaction flow" section mark the "IIncompletion messages" tick box

    Then try with a new sales order without a material number

    If won't give that pop up message any more where as it'll always go in to the incompletion log. So you can't save it without maintaining the material.

    That's a alternative way of doing.

    2- SHD0.

    Best regards,
