Hide a column when exporting a table

In our application we usually allow the standard export of a table through the button on the lint. In many cases though there are columns which are used for calculation of presentation but are not meant to be exported. It would be handy to hide these columns from the list of column to export when the user chooses the advanced export. Unfortunately hiding such a column in the ‘Subject’ tab or through a layout does not have the desired effect of hiding it from the export.

So the question is: is there actually a way to hide a column in a table so that the user can never select it for export?

Hi Miriam, 

Any column that may be visible to a user is also available for export. Hiding a column from the Subject modelers’ Columns tab would hide the column from the export but also from all components. 

There is currently no setting to specify whether a specific column can be exported or not. Please feel free to submit an idea for that!
