Custom List and the Title Column

  Asked By: Jesse    Date: Mar 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2412

I am creating a workflow application that requires several custom list
used in the sharepoint part of it. When I create a custom list the
first column is the title column, is there a way to remove that and
create several columns, on of wich would be a column called somthing
like type or name. Can we make this act like the title column or can be
totaly remove or hide the title column.

You can add additional columns  to the custom  list after it is created. You
can't remove  the Title column  since that is used by sharepoint  internally and is
a required field in all lists. Take a look at the following BLOG for how to add
a field to a list.

You cannot remove  the Title column  in an existing list, but you could
rename it.

Additionally, you can hide/show any columns  you like in a custom  view.
