Hiding the Birthday Column in the search help in transaction PA20

Steps to generate the issue.

1) Goto transaction PA20.

2) Use the search help (Press F4) in the personnel number field.

A search help pops up.

3) In the 'Last Name - First Name' tab enter 'M*' in the 'Last Name' field and select the enter button.

A list of employees is displayed. In my system along with the last name and first names the employees birthday is displayed.

The business would like this field hidden as they have decided that this is sensitive information that they do not want everybody to have access to.

Can this be hidden by making a change to configuration? How do I go about this?
