Mandatory fields in SAP SD Tables VBAP, VBAK and VBEP

Hello Experts,

I am working on a data migration project. where a data is to be transpered from legacy systems to SAP tables. To transper open sales orders to SAP i need to find the mandatory fields in the SD sales order tables. 

How can i find whether the field is mandatioy/optional in SD tables so that a opensales order in lagacy systmes remains an executable open sales order when copied to SAP tables.

    Check in the screen layout for header and item fields in the IMG. this will tell you if the field is optional, required or display only.

    All fields are maintained using he field status in the account group. here you have the option to maintain fields as either required, displayable or not entry not required.

    You can also check by viewing Incomplete Process which will show you the fields which are mandatory.

    you can find the mandatory fields of a sales order by going through Incompletion log of sales doc header, item and schedule line. i.e incompletion log groups A, B, C individully.

    The Primary key fields have a tick mark infront of them and are mandatory.
    Mandt is a client field and is mandatory as well.
