Create Expense Report how do you make field 'Start Location' mandatory


We are using travel expenses within ESS and we wish to make the field 'Start location' mandatory. This field is on the mileage screen.

I have checked portal config and when you preview the iview and control/right click there is the option to make this field mandatory however this does not work.

I have checked the IMG config 'Schema and Field Control for the trip schema we are using but when I select the field 'PTRV_UTIL_KMVER-LOC_FROM' and select 'Alternative Display Type' the option 'Entry in field is required' does not become available for use.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

Many thanks

    Hi Julie,

    You have modify the table T706Z1 to make both of this fields mandatory, this is the only

    way to make the field mandatory. In standard system the fields


    mandatory. In this case you have to do some additional settings in the

    in the table PTRV_T706Z_FLDS (se16):


    DYNNR: 1800

      Hi Raynard

      Many thanks for your quick response. I have made entries as follows in our development system ECC6:

      Table V_T706Z

      Screen = 1800

      Field Name = PTRV_UTIL_KMVER-LOC_TO

      Field Attribute = + Entry possible, mandatory



      Table = PTRV_T706Z_FLDS

      Program name = PTRA_WEB_INTERFACE

      Screen = 1800


      Field name = PTRV_UTIL_KMVER-LOC_TO

      Entry already existed so just added in column entries that '0' (required)

      I have also made the field mandatory at iview level.

      Still the field is not shown as mandatory. I have searched SAP notes but cannot find any recent notes on this issue. Have I missed doing something?

      Many thanks

    As well as doing settings in the table one had to go to the IMG and within ESS settings for travel manager change the settings in the Schema and Single Field Control for Web Dynpro. As once the table entries are made is allows the setting to be made in the IMG. However, the mandatory asterix does not appear in portal but error messages do if the field is not populated - problem solved.
