Hi @ujeyakum,

 

On PBI if you rigth click the column name or table you can select the option Hide, this will hide the column from the visualization however you are abble to use it in your measures and calculations and is visible on the tables view in a grey format.

Hi @ujeyakum,

 

You could adjust the column width manually. In your table visualization, hover your mouse over your column heading that you want to "hide" and move it to the right until the mouse cursor changes to a <-||->, then you could adjust the width of this column.

 

For the better visualization, you 'd better turn off the Word wrap in the format pane. The below should be your expected output.

Hi @ujeyakum,

 

It seems that there is no options for us to achieve it in Power BI currently.

 

I suggest you could vote the ideas below which has been submitted in Power BI ideas forum and add your comments there to improve Power BI and make this feature coming sooner.

Hi @ujeyakum,

 

What you want is to keep the Sr.No. in order?

 

If this is the point try to do the sort order choosing the column you want to sort the values by default. Not really sure if irt will work with your dataset since there isn't to much information.
