CAT2 Required field not working

I use CAC2 to update the fields in CAT2. I go to Data Entry Section, then Influencing and put in my profile. I can turn the fields on and off for display by choosing the radial button for Input. This works. However, when I select a field to be REQUIRED and then go into CAT2 and enter data it doesn't require me to enter that field. Basically the REQUIRED radial button is working the same way that the Input field it. Any thoughts on why the REQUIRED isn't working for this?

    This can't be done. See notes 141450 and 325722. The current functionality of CATS does not allow to define required

    fields in customizing(CAC2). The setting "required entry" in the field selection of transaction CAC2 is therefore not supported

    although it can be seen at CAC2 (see 141450).

    However, if you want to keep this field as required entry field, this logic has to be implemented via user-exit CATS0003 (transaction SMOD).
