How to Add Column in Table of Sales Order form

Want to Add “Description” (description of the item) Column in table.
have already followed the steps:

.Setup->Customize->Custom Field->Select Document->Sales Order Item->Add The Label Of That Field-> Description->Checkbox Selected In List View>Save.

need assistance


If above-added custom fields are not working. Then you can delete it and add using customize form. Setup > Customize Form.


The above are the customization done.

Am I missing something ?


you are adding it for Sales Order not on Sales Order Item.
Delete both custom field . Got to Setup > Customize Form

Select Document Sales Order Item

Then add your custom field wherever you want . Open Sales Order Form > Reload it > check

Since we have limited space to accommodating columns in the table, we have added a restriction of being able to add four columns only.

To add a field as a column, you should check “In List View” for it. If you have checked it, but still field not visible as a column, that’s probably you have checked “In List View” for more than four fields. Please uncheck “In List View” for other field, and then you should correctly have column visible for those four fields only.


this helped.
