Field Status Definition for Company Codes: Vendor Master Records
In addition to defining a field status for account groups and activities, you can define field status based on company codes if you want to set the status of fields in one company code differently from all other company codes. When defining the status of these fields, you have to enter the number of the company code in question.
Suppose that for a given company code, you do not need the fields for export credit insurance in vendor master records. In this case, you would suppress these fields by defining their status dependent on that company code.
In the standard system, the default field status is set for all company codes. If you do not change this setting, all field groups in the company code area of master records have the optional entry status.
