You need to add attributes to save extra data for orders. Have a look at the "Saving extra data with an order in Magento" (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4370235/saving-extra-data-with-an-order-in-magento).

It's best to write a simple custom extension to add your attribute(s) and then you need to listen to the correct event to write that extra piece of data to the database (e.g. sales_convert_quote_to_order). clockworkgeek has posted a nice overview for a possible solution.

  • can you please explain specific..?
