Symptoms

In P4210 both PA Product Allocation holding for Type 39 (Branch) in PO Tab 3-Order Holds, and also using PO Tab 10-Preference 2. Inventory Commitments Preference = 1, are being invokend.
In this example, the sales order has a header and default Branch/Plant of DC001, but there is another Branch/Plant which should be selected for some items, via Inventory Preferences.
However, the order in which all the preferences are processed puts the PA Type 39 before the Inventory Commitment, which is where the required Branch/Plant is being set.
So the PA Type 39 logic always uses the header/default B/P and not the one set via the Inventory Commitments.

Currently, Product Allocation (by branch) preference 39 does not work together with Inventory Commitment preference.
The design is as follows: First of all the other preferences (Defined in R40400) will be resolved, then the inventory preference gets resolved. First the System will try to resolve the Prod Allocation Pref for the Detail B/P (either defaulted or overridden by user) and then it goes to resolve the Inventory Commitment preference.
