Train from Vienna to Milan

I will be in Europe at the end of this month, and am getting my train tickets booked now. My trip is as follows: Paris > Milan > Vienna > Milan.
I'm going back to Milan because I have a friend there, and I am flying out from there as well.

I've had no problem booking my train from Paris to Milan, and from Milan to Vienna, but for some reason I'm having difficulty doing so for the last train ride of my trip. I went onto http://www.oebb.at/en/ to get my ticket for Vienna > Milan, but it says that it is not possible for me to purchase tickets online.

Am I going to need to purchase these tickets at the train station in Milan? I'm new to train travel, so I don't know any other reputable sites, where I should go from here etc. Any help would be appreciated! If I've left anything out that would help you give me a more thorough answer, please let me know.

I've been back and forth on the Milano Vienna route several times using rail passes and tickets, but never used the Austrian rail web site. You can probably purchase tickets when you arrive in Paris. Contact Budget Europe Travel Service, http://tinyurl.com/339uf5. They are in Ann Arbor. Linda and Byron are very experienced and helpful with advice, and can probably sell you tickets and reservations. If this is your first time on trains in Europe the site http://tinyurl.com/eym5b would be helpful.

@spaarne- Thank you for the info! I may have to contact them, if I can't find a place online to book a ticket myself.

@kybourbon- I'm going from Milan to Vienna via a sleeper train, departing on the 25th in the evening and arriving in Vienna in the morning. I wanted to arrive back in Milan the morning of August 2nd, or at least in the afternoon, because my flight leaves the morning of the 3rd.

Not sure what your problem is. I get all the way to the payment screen where I need to enter my credit card. I'm getting a price of 49€ for a 6 person couchette departing Wien at 19:30 on Aug. 1. Are you selecting the choice with 0 changes and taking 14 hours, not the choice departing at the same time and has a train change and travel time of 12 hours?
