For DrillThroughAction elements, the Columns collection identifies the columns that contain data to be returned when the action is performed.

For TableMiningStructureColumn elements, the Columns collection allows only one level of recursion. In other words, any TableMiningStructureColumn element included in this collection cannot contain any TableMiningStructureColumn elements in its Columns collection.

Some of the corresponding elements in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model are TraceColumnCollection, MiningModelColumnCollection, and MiningStructureColumnCollection.
