2953745 - Info record automatically filled when converting planned order to purchase requisition

Symptom

ECC:

You have a material with no source list entries, and there is ONE info record available for a vendor. You run MRP and generate planned orders for an externally procured material. If you check the planned order source of supply, it is blank because there is no entry on the source list.

But, when you try to convert this planned order to purchase requisition, the vendor from the info record is automatically filled even if there is no source list entries.

S/4HANA:

You have a material externally procured. The ONLY source of supply available is an info record WITHOUT the "automatic sourcing" flag.

Then, you run MRP for this externally procured material, generating planned orders. If you check, no vendor was selected on the source of supply of the planned order.

But, when you try to convert this planned order to purchase requisition, the vendor from the info record is automatically filled even if it does not contain the "automatic sourcing" flag.
