    Can you explain why you're changing from x to y and then back to x? That seems a little strange.

    it’s not possible in Business central 
    but how ever if you want to achieve you can undo the the shipment of item Y first and add item X to the same order and do the ship and invoice 
    and you can cancel or delete the previous line for item Y

    don't think it is possible, BC will use the substitute item info instead.

    As far as I know it is not possible in the standard.
    If customized, you can add a field, such as Print Item No., and then expand the report to print out the value of this field.
    Hope this can give you some hints.
