[SOLVED] Hide a field in a synonym?

Is there a way to hide a field in a synonym? We build our synonyms on MS-SQL tables but want to hide some fields on a particular table. Can I do this in the synonym? I thought about just deleting the field from the synonym, but will it just reappear when the synonym is refreshed?
Thanks!

Check the "ACCESS_PROPERTY" to "INTERNAL".
The field will become hidden, but still usable.

But I'm not sure if a refresh synonym will revert that customization or not. Try it.

That worked! Adding ACCESS_PROPERTY=(INTERNAL) in the text view of the synonym editor hides the field in the report creator, but the field still shows up if you select to show sample data for the synonym.
Thanks!!!!! Smiler
