Purchase Order (PO) receipt proration occurs to all virtual warehouses for a new item in the PO, even though distribution is set to one VWH only.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create an item and range it to two Virtual Warehouses (VWH) in the same Physical warehouse (PWH). (The physical warehouse should have 2 virtual WH only.)
  2. Create a simple pack item and add the item from step 1 to be its component.
  3. Range the pack item to the same 2 VWH and ensure that the STOCK_ON_HAND for them is zero.
  4. Create and approve a PO for the pack item. Adjust the distribution to be 100% to the first VWH only.
  5. Using the receipt script, receive the new item against the physical warehouse in the script.
    Expected behavior:  Receipt occurs and the full quantity is received in VWH 1 only, as set in the PO Distribution.
    Actual behavior:  Quantity is received and divided equally among both VWHs.
