Removing Columns from Query Output

Removing Columns from Query Output

If you are using a column in a Select query but do not want to display it in the result set (that is, you do not want it in the query's select list), you can remove it from output. After you remove the column from the query's output, you can still use it in search conditions or as a sorting field.

Note   If you want to remove a column from the query altogether, see Removing Columns from the Query.

  • In the Diagram pane, clear the check box next to the name of the column you want to remove.
