    Great module! We have one similar

    Custom Order Grid
    - Make orders grid page more efficient and handy by adding necessary custom columns and removing those that are useless.

    1) Make orders grid page more handy based on your needs

    With this extension you can easily add necessary columns to orders grid. It provides 40+ custom columns that include information about the order, ordered products, customer, order totals, billing and shipping addresses. If you won't find the column you need then our support team can quickly add it for free.

    2) Easily add or remove the grid columns you need to

    Some of the columns that standard Magento shows in orders grid may be useless for some customers. For example, most of stores use only one currency and they don't need to show both "Grand Total (Base)" and "Grand Total (Purchased)" columns. In this case, the extension will help you hide the columns you'd like to.

    3) Change sort order of the enabled grid columns

    The newly added columns will be put to the end of the grid by default. But you can easily manage the order of the columns and put them into the place you want.

    Does your Magento order grid have all of the fields you need? Adding or removing columns is fairly simple. Let’s explore how. Here we will discuss both: – Adding a custom attribute/column to the order grid. – Removing a column that you don’t need. The grid is under Sales -> Orders.

    We are going to first copy the core file to a local directory, then code a bit. Copy /app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php to /app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php. First, to make custom attribute available for inserting to grid we need to modify _prepareCollection function. Here, we are working with database table fields and using SQL joins. Let`s suppose that we need to add a postcode column. Search for _prepareCollection function and simply add this line:

    $collection->getSelect()->join('sales_flat_order_address', 'main_table.entity_id = sales_flat_order_address.parent_id',array('postcod e'));

    return parent::_prepareCollection();
    so function will look like:

    protected function _prepareCollection()
    $collection = Mage::getResourceModel($this->_getCollectionClass());
    $collection->getSelect()->join('sales_flat_order_address', 'main_table.entity_id = sales_flat_order_address.parent_id',array('postcod e'));
    return parent::_prepareCollection();
    As you can see, we have joined the sales_flat_order_address table that stores the postcode field. To insert this column into the order grid, edit _prepareColumns() function. Here you can see how default columns are inserted, so using the addColumn method, we add our own postcode column.

    $this->addColumn('postcode', array(
    'header' => Mage::helper('sales')->__('Postcode'),
    'index' => 'postcode',
    That’s it.

    Similarly, for removing a field, you just need to delete the corresponding portion of code. A few more advanced examples are provided below. Making a new custom Address column that consists of country, city and street:

    $collection->getSelect()->join('sales_flat_order_address', 'main_table.entity_id = sales_flat_order_address.parent_id',array('telepho ne','postcode','address'=>new Zend_Db_Expr('concat(sales_flat_order_address.coun try_id, ", ",, ", ",sales_flat_order_address.street)')) );
    Product SKUs of an order:

    $collection->getSelect()->join('sales_flat_order_item', '`sales_flat_order_item`.order_id=`main_table`.ent ity_id', array('skus' => new Zend_Db_Expr('group_concat(`sales_flat_order_item` .sku SEPARATOR ", ")')));
    The last, is an example of adding custom product attributes. It stores at catalog_product_entity_varchar table and we need to know its attribute_id:

    $collection->getSelect()->join('sales_flat_order_item', '`sales_flat_order_item`.order_id=`main_table`.ent ity_id AND `sales_flat_order_item`.parent_item_id IS NULL ', null);
    $collection->getSelect()->join('catalog_product_entity_varchar', '`catalog_product_entity_varchar`.attribute_id=144 AND `catalog_product_entity_varchar`.entity_id = `sales_flat_order_item`.`product_id`', array('models' => new Zend_Db_Expr('group_concat(`catalog_product_entity _varchar`.value SEPARATOR ",")')));
