Units Ordered vs Total Order Items

Under Sales Summary > Detailed page sales and traffic

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difference between Units Ordered vs Total Order Items. I am trying to make to check how much inventory of a particular item i have sold in the last 30 days and I don’t know which of these two columns is the amount I’ve sold. Under ‘Units Ordered’ it says that shows “Number of units ordered” and under ‘Total Order Items’ it says that it shows “The total number of order items ordered for the selected time period”.

This is so confusing to me. What is the difference between these two?

“Total Order Items” is the number of orders which you received for a particular product.

‘Units Ordered’ is the total amount of individual units, which you sold.
