I created three new fields in the register address, I need to show them in the order details. I tried adding them going:

System > Customers > Settings > Templates Address

And added the fields with the same name that is in the database. Here's an example of how I tried:

{{depend number_address}}{{var number_address}}{{/depend}}
{{if number_address}}{{var number_address}},  {{/if}}

I've read this tutorial: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/5_-_modules_and_development/how_to_add_custom_field_in_billing_and_shipping_address_in_frontend_and_backend

Check the attribute creation:

foreach ($attributes as $attributeCode => $data) {
    $attribute = $eavConfig->getAttribute('customer_address', $attributeCode);
        $usedInForms = array(
        $attribute->setData('used_in_forms', $usedInForms);

See the $usedInForms array ? Try to insert the handles of order details pages there.

It may not suffice, but I think it's necessary.

  • Thanks for reply Niloct. I used this... I found a bug now, when I go into the details of the purchase> Edit Billing Address or Edit Shipping Address appears those fields that I created, but empty. But when I go to Customers > Manage Customers > Choose an Customer > Addresses fields appear filled. – Eduardo Feb 25 '14 at 13:23
  • If I fill them by admin didn't work too. – Eduardo Feb 25 '14 at 18:01
  • I found my error, I haven't added the columns in the table sales_flat_order_address. Thanks to everyone. – Eduardo Feb 25 '14 at 19:53
