Embedded grid-edit report displays columns that are not requested

  • 1.  Embedded grid-edit report displays columns that are not requested

    I have an application in which one table is a child to two
    different parent tables.  I have linked the three tables accordingly and embedded a grid-edit report with just three fields from the child table into the custom forms of both parent tables.  I?m now trying to expand the grid-edit report to display a few more fields from the child table.  When I do this, the new fields are displayed but there are additional fields displayed which I have not requested and do not want to appear.  I have tried to fix this two different ways:

     ?        Initially, I tried specifying custom columns in the ?Columns to display? option for the grid-edit report.

    ?        Next, I made the desired fields the default columns for the child table and selected default columns in the ?Columns to display? option for the grid-edit report.

     In both cases the same additional fields display in the embedded report on the forms.  Is this a known issue and is there any way to force the QuickBase to not display these fields?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    The fields that are showing are most likely fields that determine a conditional relationship with one or more of the fields in your grid edit report. If that is the case, no, there is not a way to prevent this.

    OK, that's helpful.  It's possible that the conditional relationships are not needed so I'll see if I can approach it that way.
