Due Date has become mandatory-how to make it optional



I am posting a vendor transaction using SP GL indicator and the system is giving me Due Date as a mandatory field (with a check mark on the Due Date field to show that it is mandatory).

Following are the settings which I have already checked:-

1.) OB41 - Configuration of the posting key which shows Due date as optional

2.) Field status group of the normal as well as special GL recon accounts - Here also Due Date is optional

3.) When I go to system --> Status, we are using program SAPMF05A and screen 304. Here also a customised screen variant, if used, is not visible. (However the GUI status is a custmoised one i believe GUI status does not impact this field at all)

4.) There are no validations in the system. (Even if there were any validations in the system the system would not display a check mark on the field if the field was made mandatory using a validation.

Is there anything I am missing or is there any other configuration which might impact the field status at the time of transaction posting?

Please help me urgently.

Thanks in anticipation,
