Dear members in the group

I am working with a data base with more than 90 variables.
I want to incorporate some information in 
selected 5 or 6 field. I want to use an entry 
mask that only display the fields I will work on 
so I can have the benefits of using the information in the chk list.

BEFORE RECORD
  HIDE STUDY
  HIDE CONSENTIMI
  HIDE ETNIAN
  HIDE ETNIA
  HIDE NAME
  .
  .
END

That works but is displays all the entry form 
(preventing the data entry in the hidden fiels. 
Is there any way to prevent that the hidden 
variables are displayed in the screen?

I am attaching the QES  file thank you in advance
