Suppress, Restore Columns

You can suppress the columns that you do not want to include in a view. The suppressed columns will not be available in the presentation layer of your reporting tool. You can also restore the columns that have been suppressed in the view. The list of columns available for suppression in a view does not include columns of the ROWID type. The columns of the Non-editable category will be available for suppression. For information about such column types, see Unsupported Column Types in NoetixViews Workbench.

When you suppress the columns of the view, the following points need to be considered:

  • If the view is a base view, make sure that the suppressed columns are not used by other views.

  • If the view is a list of values (LoV) view, make sure that the suppressed columns are not mapped to columns in other views.

  • If the columns that you want to suppress from a view are used in reports, make sure that the columns are removed from the reports before suppressing them.

  • If you suppress columns that exist in more than one query of the view, the columns will be suppressed in those queries where the columns are available.

  • After you suppress columns from a view, these columns will not be available in the view for modification until you restore them.
