the answer to your specific question is "no"; if you don't want to drop
the irrelevant variables (and save the ones you want in a new file),
then use the -order- command to get the ones you want upfront so that
they all show; if you really want only the 20 or so you are using to
show, then change the size of that window so that only those show
