Customer has a few orders which have a subinventory specified on the sales order line. These are sales orders for goods that have a very unique purpose. Most of their orders do not have a subinventory specified on the sales orders form. The orders with the subinventory specified on the order line are released manually, and all of the other orders are released using Pick Release - SRS and a pick release rule which does not specify a 'release critiera' subinventory.
When pick release is run (in batch or SRS mode) for the orders without a subinventory on the order line, using a pick release rule which does not specify a release-criteria subinventory, the orders which have a subinventory specified on the order line are also picked. Since the release rule has a 'pick from' subinventory specified, these orders are picked from the 'pick from' subinventory rather than the subinventory on the order line.
Why does this happen? We expected that if there is a NULL value for the release criteria subinventory, and a non-null value on the sales order line, these two would not match and hence the order line would not be eligible for picking.
