I have created a product which has an extended description that differs from the current item number and product name, on a purchase order line, how do i display this instead of the original?
Use the form setup. Go to Procurement and sourcing module, setup, Forms, Form Setup.
In the general section, update item number in forms as Your.

Thanks for this but it is still not working when I have tested it :\
Do you have external item description as Append still or Overwrite
Is the external description actually written to your order line?

I have set up the external description by the product, so then when I go to put a purchase order on it doesnt display the extended description.
If this makes sense.
If the line is entered AFTER the change this will work - the external number is written to teh line so you can see it on the second (?) line tab. So check the line to check the data is working.
Also people struggle with this when they modify the report and remove this standard functionality.
The rest is in the form setup which you have done I believe from the previous post.
I can now see the external item description on the second line, would it have to be a modification to display the Product Name?
Yes it would, the description is traditionally teh same for both, it is the number that is different.
