You didn't specify the Magento version but here is the solution for CE (might also work for others):

The product name and SKU are output in app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/sales/items/column/name.phtml. You will find a variable $_item which is an object of the class Mage_Sales_Model_Order_Item.

If you want to output data which is saved in the order item, you can directly use the order item:

<?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_item->getSomeValue()) ?>

If you need data which is only saved in the product itself, you can get the product and echo its value:

<?php echo $_item->getProduct()->getDescription(); ?>

Be aware that the same template is used for other pages like the invoice, shipment page and so on and there may be different templates for other product types.

    If it's working on one site and not on the other my first suspicion would be that some site-specific extension / adjustment either changes the behaviour or the template of this grid. You could check if your template file is really used at this position and which data the order item / product contains. You can also check if you find out more by debugging the store. If you don't find the reason you could post that as a new question given you have some information to work with for the users here. Feb 16, 2015 at 7:50
  • hi, it's really strange, but i edited here too : app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/sales/order/view/items/renderer/default.phtml file. than i got result.... thanks a lot again.... Feb 17, 2015 at 4:59

you need to adjust app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/sales/order/view/items/renderer/default.phtml This is the table you are looking for. Add what ever you want to add here :)

  • hi, you are right.... i did it.... Feb 17, 2015 at 5:09

This works great. However if the product is variable it will not work. I Need a barcode "EAN" to be displayed as attribute. It works as single products but show empty as variable.

<?php echo $_item->getProduct()->getEan(); ?>

How to solve that?

  • if you post new question with these details, you may get solution soon..... Apr 3, 2017 at 11:00
