If I have some fields in a table that I do NO...

If I have some fields in a table that I do NOT want displayed ONLY when creating a new record, what is the best approach for “hiding” them temporarily?

I don’t want to mark the columns Hidden because I want them available when the record is edited.

I thought of (and have used) a New Entry Slice making only available the columns for a new entry but I now think this might be overly cumbersome.

I could use Show_IF if there was a way to determine a record is new or existing - without adding explicit status column.

How have you found the best way to handle this?

@John_Baer1 you can use this expression in Show_if:

IN([KeyColumn], TableName[KeyColumn])

Thank you!

Works well.

Don’t know why I didn’t think of it!
