If you want to add a new column at then you have to work on below files:


Create sales_order_view.xml at your module app/code/{Vendor}/{ModuleName}/view/adminhtml/layout

and add a new column using below code

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="order_items">
                <argument name="columns" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="customcol" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Custom column</item>
            <block class="{Vendor}\{ModuleName}\Block\Adminhtm\Items\Column\Custom" name="column_customcol" 
                   template="{Vendor}_{ModuleName}::items/column/custom.phtml" group="column"/>         
        <referenceBlock name="default_order_items_renderer">
                <argument name="columns" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="customcol" xsi:type="string" translate="false">col-customcol</item>

Here customcol is a unique identifier for the new column.

BLock class Column.php for showing content.Location app/code/{Vendor}/{ModuleName}/Block/Adminhtml/Items/Column/Custom.php

and Code:

namespace {Vendor}\{ModuleName}\Block\Adminhtml\Items\Column;

class Custom  extends \Magento\Sales\Block\Adminhtml\Items\Column\DefaultColumn


Phtml custom.phtml file for this block app/code/{Vendor}/Magento/view/adminhtml/templates/items/column/custom.phtml

and Code is:

// phpcs:disable Magento2.Templates.ThisInTemplate
/* @var $block \Magento\Sales\Block\Adminhtml\Items\Column\Name */
<?php if ($_item = $block->getItem()) : ?>
    <div id="order_item_<?= (int) $_item->getId() ?>_title"
        <?= $block->escapeHtml($_item->getName()) ?>
<?php endif; ?>


Replace {Vendor} with Your module vendor name and {ModuleName} replace Module Name.
