Ex: In sales order ---Header--Partners Tab---if u double click on partner --- Address POP-UP appears.

  (VA02- Enter sales order number---Enter--click on HEADER---click on PARTNERS TAB--CLICK ON ANY PARTNER/CUSTOMER)

If I remove  text in NAME is showing as MANDATORY.

If I want to see d logic against to see through breakpoint or in some other way...

Either the mandatory flag comes from dynpro definition or is set in PBO Abap logic.

  • So first look with SE51 at field attributes in dynpro definition, if not mandatory, note any attached screen group.
  • Then navigate to PBO to identify the module which set the screen attributes, in debug you could set a watchpoint on SCREEN-NAME = your field.

NB: You could also start in SPRO Customizing looking for partner profiles in the Sales and Distribution area (Basic Functions, partners)

Hi Varun

Go to system --> Status... Note down the field name, structure or table name, Program( Screen), Screen number...

Now double click on the Screen ( if you have access to code ) then find out the exact field name where you are referring to from the Includes mentioned( you can check the program name )

Put a break point at the field mentioned and re-run the transaction..

or the other way

after removing the name filed ,,,, type /H in the command prompt and see the logic

Please check and let me know in case of any difficulties
