Hide column of an ALV table completely


I have a context attrribute "INTERNAL_KEY". This attribute is used for a column of an ALV table and holds the internal key of an object.

Acutally I set the attribute invisible, because the user shouldn't see this attribute. The problem is that the user can set the attribute visible through the ALV-settings pop-up. Is there a possiblity to avoid that this attribute is shown in the ALV-settings pop-up ( without removing the attribute from the context) .

Thanks for your help,
