Tech Tip: Table Attributes - Invisible
Published On: October 22, 1999

This check box allows you to make a table invisible in the User and Custom Menus environments. Use this option when a table is no longer being used in the database, or you want to hide it from the user, prevent import and export, or quick reports and labels.

Making a table invisible allows you to limit the operations that a user can perform on a table by making the table and its fields invisible in all editors and some dialog boxes that appear in the User and Custom Menus environments. These editors and dialog boxes include the following:

All query editors
Order By editor
Chart editor
Label editor
Quick Report editor
Import and Export dialog boxes
Apply Formula dialog box
