Hi Sneha,

Go to SPRO>PM>PA-->Customising User Interfaces.

Select the respective module pool and the screens and maintain the feature p0006. You will get the output.

pl let me know still if you have doubt.

Thanks & Regards

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

When you open the same, click on the position tab and type Module Program as: MP000600

Now find out which screen is applicable. Double click on the same and now you would be seeing the Fields with options like Std. RF, OF. Hide etc. RF - Required Field if you want to maintain as mandatory. OF - Optional Field - Not mandatory. Hide - To hide the particular Field.

I think this would solve your problem.

Go to Infotype 0006, place your cursor on the field that you would like to make it optional, it will display the help (Performance Assistant) Click on Technical Details. Now it will show the Infotype and the Screen Number.

In the screen modifications, need to select the same infotype with the above screen number. Then make the changes and see the same has been reflected in the infotype.
