I have 18 fields in my report but the count of fields in the Show me section shows 13. Is there a limit to the count? I'm trying to validate I've pulled in the correct number of fields into my report.

Hi Anthony,

The number that we show towards the end is not the number of fields, but the number of fields which are hidden from plain view. The number 13 says that there are 13 extra fields which are hidden and not showed. 5 fields must be shown in full beside show me!

Ok that answers it! so 13 + the visible 5 = my 18 total fields. That just threw me off. Thank you for clarification!

Thanks Dan, I read that same doc and I mis-interpreted that part. Now it all makes sense! I appreciate the extra info.
