Hide and Exclude Rows in Data Tables

Apply Hidden and Excluded row states to rows that you do not want to include in analysis or plot calculations and that you do not want to display in plots. These rows are not included in subsequent analyses.


Plots found under the Graph menu, with the exception of Profilers, are immediately recalculated to reflect hidden and excluded rows.

For many platforms, reports and plots are not updated immediately to reflect excluded and hidden observations. You need to rerun the analysis to recalculate analysis results and the related plots. For exceptions, see Platforms that Update Immediately for Hide and Exclude.

When you Exclude and Hide rows, they are excluded and hidden in all open reports and plots that update automatically.

When you Exclude and Hide rows, a circle with a strikethrough (Image shown here, for Exclude) and a mask icon (Image shown here, for Hide) appear beside the row number.

Rows remain hidden and excluded until you highlight the rows and select Hide and Exclude again

To hide and exclude one or more rows

1. Select the rows that you want to hide and exclude.

2. Do one of the following:

Right-click the highlighted area next to the row numbers and select Hide and Exclude.

From the Rows menu, select Hide and Exclude.
