Hi

I am trying to hide a column in an application Developed using Oracle Apex.

HTML of table is generated by Apex so I cannot change that. The table column starts with

<td headers="COL19" class="t9data">
......
.....
</td>


I tried following but it did not work
  $('td headers="COL19"').hide();


Please help

You could try something like this to remove all cells under the same table header:
var colHeader = $('td[headers="COL19"]');
var table = colHeader.parents("table");

table.find("tr").each(function() {
$(this).find("td")[colHeader.index()].remove();
});

How is the specific cell specified? You could do something like this:
var cell_rowNumber = 3;
var cell_colNumber = 5;

var table = colHeader.parents("table");

table.find("tr:gt(cell_rowNumber)").find("td")[cell_colNumber].remove();
