Very good!

I tried also this:

tag Field City With '$hidden';

and it works too.

Great comment Mauro !!!

I knew the hiddeprefix instruction but the tag field is more powerful because you can use it without renaming your fields.

Thanks a lot !

PS: You can use also:

Tag Fields Using mapTable

In this case all couples fieldname,tag in the mapping table mapTable will be tagged.

You can use "tag Field" statement too:

tag Field Month $hidden;

Adheesh,

When we load data sources, there is a requirement to bring some fields in the data model but we want to
hide it from users or normally we don't want to show in UI.

For example keys, fields that are used only in set analysis, flag fields etc.,
There is no point in showing these kind of fields for the end user, since it is in appropriate for them in dashboard.
So we need to hide.
