@vijayashanti In power bi desktop you can right-click your column / columns and click Hide and that will hide it from the report. When that report is published to power bi service you won't see that field and also when you export as csv from the visual you won't get that field. 

Thank you @ankitpatira ,


Our requirement is like, we should get that hidden field in CSV file.

Hi @vijayashanti,


Currently, there is no such a functionally to allow us hiding column in a table visual. As ankitpatira said, if you hide it in source table, then the column is unavailable when exporting to CSV.  So currently, I am afraid your requirement cannot be done.
