I don't seem to be able to find a way to set the visibility on a data column in a matrix control. The only visibility I seem to be able to access is either the header textbox or the data textbox but not the column as a whole.

Is it possible?

Its not possible to do it with SSRS 2005. SSRS 2008 has an option though: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159830.aspx

If your column has one textbox or cell you can do visibity-hide on the sinlge item and this will work  on the whole column.
Really need more details of what you are trying to do.

I have a matrix control with 5 row groups, 1 column group and 7 data fields -  see screenshot.. I would like to make 1 of the 7 data fields hidden under certain circumstances.

I tried setting the visibility on the both the data item and its header textbox (Insurer) but it still gives me an empty white column.

I think you will fine that if you use a table and not a matrix, you will be able to control each field and column easier.

True... but I need a matrix for this report. So I guess you're agreeing with @mcv22?
