The reason why the system does not fetch the data for few Items is because the default period for mandatory filter prompts for which the ORD (adhoc) reports shall be generated with is 36 months and if a SO with an Item ID is created before 36 months from when you are running the report, since the period is more than 36 months here they would not included in the resulting report.

For Item Cost and Order Information Report : the base parameter is "Item Creation Date":
When we select/run a report in the ORD, it would ask for the start and end date and if we do not specify any values, the default period of 36 months(3 years) would be taken and the report would be generated only for Items created within 36 months and if there are any data prior to that setting, the system would be not get the data.

The reason why ORD was able to pull the data for "Schedule Offering Registration Report" is because, the base parameter is "Registration Date" and the Registration date in case of all the SOs might be well within 36 months.

To change the default setting, please go to the LMS admin side and navigate to System Admin > REPORT_SYSTEM > search for adhocReportDefaultPeriod

Default is set to 36 months. Please increase the default value that you deem appropriate. Try it in ORD again and the issue should be fixed.

Note > adhocReportPreviewModeDefaultPeriod is the time period for Preview mode of reports the default for which is 3 months.
