Set Hide Prefix is the answer

Re: Not show some field in actual selections

Fields that are tagged as $hidden will not display in the Current Selections box. You can make fields hidden in two ways in the script.

1. Set the HidePrefix or HideSuffix QV variables.

        SET HidePrefix=_;   // Any field beginning with _ will be hidden

2. Tag the field with $hidden

   TAG myfield WITH $hidden;

A hidden field is still part of your model. It will appear in your field selection lists if you check "Show Hidden Fields", like for example, on the "Select Fields" dialogue
