Symptoms

When autocreating a document the Approved Supplier List (ASL) sourcing precedence should be:         

1. #Supplier, Supplier site, Local ASL                            
2. #Supplier, Supplier site, Global ASL                            
3. #Supplier, only Local ASL                                      
4. #Supplier, only Global ASL

A Local and a Global ASL are then created for the same combination of item/vendor/source document.  The difference is however that on the Global ASL the release method and the vendor site are not defined:

Local:   - Release method is: Release Using Autocreate (MANUAL)
           - vendor site is included
Global: - Release method is: NULL
           - vendor site: NULL

When a Requisition is autocreated that references the details from the Local ASL, the autocreation process does not give precedence to the Local ASL, but to the Global ASL.  As a result, because no Release method and vendor site are defined on the Global ASL, the autocreation process fails with:
