Easy Tip - Setting the default column display for a Browser window

ez Is there a way I can only show certain columns in a browser every time I browse my table?

Here is a useful tip for the Browser window. This tip does not rely on new capabilities in MI Pro v11.5. (You need v8.5 or later for this capability.)

If you are constantly removing unneeded columns from the display of the Browser window then this tip will be a time saver. It is possible to control which columns will display and the order they will be displayed in, as a default.

Note that this capability is not making a permanent change to the structure of your table. The columns are hidden from view in the Browser window they are not permanently removed from the table.
