Infotype screen control

Hi,

Can anyone help me with the difference between the STD and RF screen control option for the fields of an infotype in the table T588M?

I understand that both STD and RF option makes a field mandatory. Also, 'STD' means standard Setting and 'RF' means required field at the outset.

But please let me know the exact difference between them.

Warm Rgds,

Arun.M

    Hi Arun;

    Actually they are not same. There is difference.

    STD is standard and RF is required field.

    Normally STD is coming with the system standard. I mean if that field is important for every company etc, I mean that field is required for every entry then STD means same thing with RF. But in some conditions some fields are not mandatory in the system standard. So when it is STD in T588M you can leave this fields empty.

    But RF makes the field reuired field anyway and you need to enter a value to save the infotype.

    Hope I could explain it clearly.

    Regards.

    Okan

      Arun hi;

      As I have tried to explain before if that field is mandatory in the SAP standart then even it is STD that field is mandatory.

      If the field is not mandatory in SAP standart then you can save the IT without any value in the related field. You have to chose RF to make that field mandatory.

      It is about IT's qualification. If in IT's coding SAP has stated that that field is mandatory in system standart then in STD it is a required field.

      Regars,

      Okan
