    answer depends a bit on you column structure.

    if you do a drilldown on the month/period you should be possible to hide the column by supressinf the 0 Values in the Query properties in the query designer.

    If you have a fixed structure you would have to filter on the structure elemets.

    Or the easiest hide the column using Excel functionality.

    Hope that helped.

      Billy,

      as I mentioned before in the Query designer you can select in the query properties if you want to supress 0 values for rows, columns or both (BW30B).

      Using a fixed structure you have to select "use zero supression also for structure elements" in the structure properties (rmc on structure -> properties)).

      I have not tried it myself yet so please let us know how it worked.

      regards,

      Michael

    Billy, your need is similar to one that was raised a couple of weeks ago. Except, turned 90-degrees. The earlier posting wanted to hide rows.

    In that case, the person posting the question wanted to use Visual Basic and we tried to talk him out of it, thinking there might be better ways to do it directly in BW. In this case, I think you need to use Visual Basic.

    Here is link to the Visual Basic that worked to hide rows. If you'd like help translating this to hide columns, let me know.
