BOM generated by OutputJob has Wrong Manufacturer Part Number

Why is it that if I generate the BOM from the menu Reports->Bill of Materials the BOM is generated correctly.
But If I generate the BOM using an OutputJob there is always one component that has a wrong Manufacturer Part Number?

Have you checked the component parameters? Does it have duplicate parameters?

If I go to the properties of the component on the schematic document I see the correct manufacturer part number on the field "Design Item ID". Is this the correct way of cheking it?

There's nothing that forces the outjob file's BOM report generation tool's configuration to match that of the BOM report dialog in Altium. If the same results are desired from both their settings will have to match.

If I go to Report / Bill of materials it show the "comment" field. The same goes for when I add a BoM to the Job file.
But I do not know of the first, but in the JobFile, you can customize it all and save that to the JobFile for future use.

So simply the question is: what fields are being exported in both cases?
