    Hiding an active field

      Hi Members,


      I have a question, not quite sure if it is doable or not, but here it is. There is column in my tableau meta data that is taken from a Hadoop table. Let us call the column as 'Col A'. I have created a tableau calculation on top of Col A and named it at 'Calc A'. We are using only Calc A in the dashboard.


      What I want know is,  since we are not using Col A in the dashboard how do I hide it because I do not want to see it in the underlying data. The 'HIDE' option doesn't work since Col A is active. Is there a way how I can hide Col A in the underlying data?
