How to hide a column in a Straight table - with flags - having issues!

Hi,

I have a straight table in QlikView

The dimension is an id

=if(_ACTIVE_FLAG=1   , DPP_ID,null())  which is only displayed when the id is active

The expressions are a mixed bag with some columns that should always show

address, name, city, state

and some columns which should show conditionally

e.g. if member_flg =1 then show Member id column

There is a button that controls how the table should display data - a Member button which selects 1 or 0 on the member_flg

I am unable to hide the entire column  Member Id!!

I believe it has something to do with the specific expression I am using

What am I missing here - any ideas or suggestions ?

I have to use a straight table - other tables are not an option

Thanks in advance!!

Rick

It's easier to resolve your issue if you post a small sample QVW that shows your current status.

I wish I could, kind of large data model in the back ground - the general question is do all the flags have to match in the straight table or can you have one flag on a dimension and another on an expression.  Also can columns be totally hidden or will the label always display and the content is hidden?

Sorry I wish I could share more data

Thanks for your assistance
