Hi Ajit,
to set the columnwidth to zero u need to set all three
setMaximumWidth(0);
setPreferredWidth(0);
setMinimumWidth(0);
setPreferredWidth(0) does not work alone.
regards
Deekasha

Hi,
This is not working for me. I still get a phantom column, about 1 character wide.
I have tried and tried to make it go away, but it persists.

Any ideas?

I finally found the answer!
column = table.getColumnModel().getColumn(col_numb_to_be_hidden);
table.removeColumn(column);

It worked for me !!
Good luck .. Sandhya
TableColumn column1 = null;
column1 = JTable1.getColumnModel().getColumn(no. of the col you want to hide);
column1.setMaxWidth(0);
column1.setMinWidth(0);
column1.setWidth(0);
column1.setPreferredWidth(0);
