Requisition Defaults do not Copy to the Line Details Until the Line Information is Entered (Doc ID 1597204.1)

Symptoms

If the user enters information on the REQ defaults page, it does not carry over to the line details until the line information is entered, such as description or item id.  This makes it difficult to select a contract line because contract search displays contracts for all vendors.

Steps to recreate the issue:
  1)  Create a Contract and save in Approved status
  2)  Create a Requisition
  3)  Go to Requisition Defaults and enter the Vendor that is on the Contract
  4)  Go to Line Details and see Vendor is not populated yet
  5)  On Line Details, go to Contract Search to select the Contract and Contract Line.  See that all Contracts for all Vendors are listed.  

  This is a problem as customer may have 1000s Contracts.  This makes it almost impossible to select the desired Contract and Contract Line.

  If the Vendor was populated from the Req Defaults, then only Contracts for that Vendor would be listed, which would make it possible to select the appropriate Contract and Contract Line.
