Use render to exclude records starting with a period "."

Use render to exclude records starting with a period "."
I have done this in the past and it still works on those pages.  I am trying to it again and it does not work.

So - you cannot use rendering conditions to exclude rows from a table.  You need to set up model conditions to do this. 

You may have gotten a specific component or field editor field to be hidden if the value was a period.  But you won’t be able to hide whole rows. 

Bingo!  Thanks.
