Thanks for the suggestion, Mike. Nick's
alternative solution looks easy enough even for me to use.

you are likely to need that smaller form a lot then design a

slightly different name.
US Census Ancestry
other Census years on Ancestry will also have fewer columns,
so you will add a new version for each year as necessary.
you are only deleting columns it should be easy to copy the
existing 1940 template to your new 1940 template and just
delete the columns.
it really is a common type of Census form on Ancestry (and
elsewhere) then maybe Nick will add those templates to AS or
they could be shared in the FHUG Knowledge Base downloads.
using AS7 to input details from the 1940 US Census, the AS
Template shows a lot of columns that do not appear in the
census form - or at least, in the version of the census form
that is shown by Ancestry. Using AS7 'auto text' the result
is that in the 'text from source' tab of the source/citation
in FH7 I have a lot of columns that are empty apart from the
header. I can edit those colums in FH7 by laboriously
deleting each header and then minimising the column width,
but is there any straightforward way, either in AS7 before
saving, or in FH7 after saving, to delete those columns
