Unable to make field non-mandatory using SM30/T588M

Hello Gurus -

My client would like the field LAND1 (country key) to be optional in infotype 21 (Family Members/Dependants). Standard delivery appears to be that this field is mandatory if any of the address fields are populated. We have tried to make this non-mandatory by setting it as Optional or Hiding it in T588M. No matter how we set this field up, it still behaves as mandatory if any address field is populated. We are certain we are at the correct Mod Pool/Variable Key combination as we have successfully changed other field requirements for this infotype.

Does anyone have any input as to why we are encountering this problem and/or suggestions as to how to get around it?

Thanks!

Zaj

    Hi Zajebiscie,

    Can you let me know the screen number in the module pool MP002100 for whcih you are making the LAND1 field as non-mandatory.

    Because, usuallu the filelds which are coded to behave in a standard manner are not controlled using T588M table. You will have to use the screen exit for the same.

    Ask your ABAPPER to look for the same in the screen for the Module Pool MP002100.

    Thanks & REgards, Swapnil Mishra

    Hi,

    Follow IMG path -> Personnel Management -> Personnel Administration -> Customizing User Interfaces-> Change Screen Modifications

    Try using the below screen for modification for IT 0021:

    Module Pool MP002100

    Standard screen 2001

    Alternative screen 2001

    Feature P0021

    In feature see that you maintain for which MOLGA Country Grouping and subtyes you want to use.

    I hope this will help you.

    Thanks,
