Deleting a column

You can remove a column in the expanded Data in analysis flyout of Spotfire clients, if you no longer want to include it in the analysis.

Note: When the data comes from an external (in-database) data connection, you will not be able to delete columns from that source. Instead, it may be possible to edit the connection and exclude the unwanted column from the connection.


You must have some data loaded in the analysis and the analysis must be in Editing mode.


  1. On the authoring bar, click Data in analysis and click on the column of interest.
  2. In the expanded flyout, make sure that Details on selected column is selected.
  3. At the top of the expanded flyout, click Delete column Delete data table..
