Business Objects - Webi - Hide Columns in a Table or Crosstab

This article explains how you can hide a column of data in a table or crosstab in a Webi report form and still leave it available for sorting and filtering.

This article explains how you can hide a column of data in a table or crosstab in a Webi report form and still leave it available for sorting and filtering.

Alert: If a report uses a particular data object for a sort or a calculation, you must not delete that data object from the table. If you delete data objects, data sorts using those objects will disappear and you may encounter calculation errors in the report. See Business Objects - Webi - Advanced - Getting a #Computation error for further information.

However, you can hide data objects from view without actually removing them from the table or crosstab.

Note: you can only hide dimension or detail objects, not measure objects.

  1. Right-click on the object you want to hide.

  2. Select Hide > Hide Dimension.

    Hide Column Option on Business Objects Webi

  3. To show hidden objects, right-click any object in the table or crosstab. Click Hide > Show Hidden Dimensions.
