To include the short description in invoice,edit the file in


Find the line,

<h5 class="title"><span id="order_item_<?php echo $_item->getId() ?>_title"><?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_item->getName()) ?></span></h5>

Add the code after that line,

<?php $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_item->getProductId());?>
<div><strong><?php echo $this->helper('sales')->__('Short Description') ?>:</strong><?php echo $product->getShortDescription();?></div>

I have just included the short description, change as per your requirement.


Add custom code in file app\design\adminhtml\default\default\template\sales\items\column\name.phtml

<?php if($_item->getProduct()->getShortDescription()):?>
         <div><strong><?php echo $this->helper('sales')->__('Short Description') ?>:</strong> <?php echo $_item->getProduct()->getShortDescription();?></div>

<?php endif;?>

Add above code after bellow code

<h5 class="title"><span id="order_item_<?php echo $_item->getId() ?>_title"><?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_item->getName()) ?></span></h5>
