Well, that is what I need to do.

I tried to look for similar scripts but I have not found the solution.

Thanks in advance.

Here is a simple script that will delete all columns that are all zeros

```
Names Default To Here( 1 );
dt = Current Data Table();
numericColNames = dt << get column names( string, numeric );
allZerosList = {};
For( i = 1, i <= N Items( numericColNames ), i++,
If( Col Sum( Column( dt, numericColNames[i] ) ) == 0
& Col Std Dev( Column( dt, numericColNames[i] ) ) == 0,
Insert Into( allZerosList, numericColNames[i] )
)
);
If( N Items( allZerosList ) > 0,
dt << delete columns( allZerosList )
);
```

Re: Delete all columns that have zeros in all raws

Can this be tweaked such that I can remove columns that have mostly zeros (eg. 50% of more of the rows)?

Thanks.

Thanks.

Re: Delete all columns that have zeros in all raws

You could do something like:

```
If(
N Rows( dt << get rows where( Column( dt, numericColNames[i] ) == 0 ) ) >
N Rows( dt ) / 2,
Insert Into( allZerosList, numericColNames[i] )
);
```
