I think in this case you need to make the report using the xml field in biblio items table because the rest of sub fields you will find there

I'm trying to catch duplicate items in data before I upload it (ISBN won't
help in this case). In order to do that I've written a report to list the
books currently in Koha, and will compare them with my external files.
 However, if I can't include the subtitle (MARC 245 b) I will get too many
false positives (we have lots of things with the same title, but different
It would also help if I could  also have the 250 a (edition)

This is what I have:
FROM items
 LEFT JOIN biblioitems on
LEFT JOIN biblio on (biblioitems.biblionumber=biblio.biblionumber)
WHERE items.itype='BK' AND items.holdingbranch='VWML'
ORDER BY biblio.author asc

This works fine, but doesn't include the 245 b or the 250 a  Can anyone
