That's easy, you just have to create a column with invisibility attribute, check this sample:

.active-controls-grid { table-layout:inherit; height: 100%; font: menu; }
.active-column-0 {width: 1px; background-color:#FFFFFF; visibility:hidden}
.active-column-1 {width: 220px; background-color:#FFFFCC;}
.active-column-2 {width: 120px;text-align: left; background-color:#FFFFFF}

When you define the style of your table, just add the visibility:hidden in the column you want to hide.
Check that width of the hidden column must be in 1 px, otherwise you'll see a blank column on your grid.

Hope this can help.

.active-controls-grid {height: 35%; width:60%; font: menu;}
.active-column-0 {width: 1px; visibility:hidden}
.active-column-1 {width: 80px;}
.active-column-2 {width: 200px; background-color: threedlightshadow;}
.active-column-3 {text-align: right;}
.active-column-4 {text-align: right;}
.active-column-5 {text-align: right;}

//rows highlitght
.active-row-highlight {background-color: threedshadow}
.active-row-highlight .active-row-cell {background-color: threedshadow}

<!-- grid data -->

var obj = new Active.Controls.Grid;

obj.setDataText(function(i, j){return myData[i][j]});
obj.setColumnText(function(i){return myColumns[i]});

var row = new Active.Templates.Row;
row.setEvent("onmouseover", "mouseover(this, 'active-row-highlight')");

obj.setTemplate("row", row);

function printRowData(src){
var index = src.getProperty("row/index");
window.status = myData[index][0];
document.getElementById("txt1").value = myData[index][0];

obj.setAction("click", printRowData);
