Subform "Column Choose" Functionality

I have a standard Access form with a subform drawing fields from a Project table. The table itself has about 25 fields and the subform is showing about 5. There has been a request to allow end-users to select the fields they want to show on the subform.

Is there a common best-practice way to do this? I though about toggling the .visible property but think that would leave holes where the not-visible fields are.

Any input is welcome!

You could use a datasheet as the subform, which would allow the users to hide or drag columns into the position you want them in.  I actually have an article on how to do this, located here.
