Make "Reference Document" field as mandatory in Confirmation

Hi Experts,

I have a requirement in confirmation to make "Reference Document" field as mandatory. I have done the config and able to see ' * ' (mandatory) in the reference document field in confirmation. However, system is not validating for entry in that field, I am able to save or post the confirmation w/o the entry in the reference document field.

Version: SRM 7.0 SP05 with EP

SPRO -> SRM Server -> Cross Appl... -> Extension and Field Control (Personalization) -> Configure Field Control -> Configure Control for Fields on Header Level --> Metadata for Fields on Document Headers

Structure Field Name : REF_DOC_NO

Bus. Object Type : BUS2203

Bus. Object Subtype : CF

Transaction Type : CONF

Field Visible : X

Field Enabled : X

Field Required : X

Please advice.

    Hi Siiva,

    This is a completely correct conclusion. SAP however states that although you can now mark fields as required as per your configuration there isn't anything controlling the fact that this actually a required field. For this you still, as in previous releases, need to configure some sort of doccheck via an implementation of the BBP_DOC_CHECK_BADI.

    Kind regards,

      Dear Siva or Tim,

      would it be maybe possible for you, to give an example or sample of the code, that you might have used regarding this point?

      Thank you very much in advance.
