Hiding Fields or tabs while still using them



I have worked with FileMaker for a while now but can't seem to figure this out.  My problem is I want to hide a large portion of fields on my layout but still use them.  

Basically when I import data from excel into the database I have all the fields set to a column or row of data.  

For example:  

Customer ID Company X
Customer1 1

So once this information goes to Filemaker I have multiple companies who attribute one or more invoices to that one customer.  I have these companies lined up and totaling the invoices but I do not want the company names to be visible.  In other words I want only the total fields to be visible at all times and the company fields to be hidden at all times in any view but still be able to import information into them.
