I have added a custom field in Quote item table. I have been able to populate this field and can see data in it. However, during conversion from Quote to Order I am trying to retrieve value of this field for current item. I am doing this in Observer. Added an observer event sales_convert_quote_item_to_order_item and code for getting field value is like this:
$quoteItem = $observer->getItem(); $customFieldData = $quoteItem->getCustomFieldData();
This is not working. It seems that $observer->getItem() returns model Mage_Sales_Model_Quote_Address_Item, so my custom field is not present in this model.
