Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Sales Orders work center.
  2. Go to Reports View.
  3. Open report Sales Order Volume and click Apply to run the report.
  4. From the View list, add the Row Field - Product and Sales Order.
  5. You can see for some of the sales orders, the product ID is XXX.1 and for few orders you can see it is XXX.2(XXX is the ID of Product).


The reason why the Product ID is XXX.1 or XXX.2 is because you have a Material and a Service with same ID XXX, whenever you use the material in the sales order, the product ID in the report will be displayed as XXX.1 and when you use service, it will displayed as XXX.2.


There is material and service with the same ID , in order to identify whether the product used in the sales order is a material or a service, the product ID is displayed in this manner. This behavior is same for all the reports and datasources related to sales documents.
