* Column view capture specific parts only

Hi all,

I have a nice outline set up in column view and would like to capture
different versions of this into org-tables. There is far too many
properties to get quick overviews, e.g. one table-capture I'd like to do
contains only the task name and the committed delivery in ascending
order, and another would contain only task and task-lead in ascending
order. 

I have tried to find information and implement this but not succeeded so
far, so apologies if I have missed any key information in usage, but I
only manage to capture one defined table view, as given by the COLUMNS:
property in the root of the capture tree. One version I tried was to
capture this (entire) view and then export the subsequent views using
radio-tables and orgtbl-to-orgtbl with :skipcolumn, but couldn't figure
out the proper syntax?

(info "(org)Capturing column view")
(info "(org)Radio tables")

Thanks,
-- 
Johnny

A case-study org file would have helped here. :-(

No file? vague answers :-(

Use different definition of columns:

* first 2 properties
:PROPERTIES:
:COLUMNS:  %40prop_1 %Prop_2
:END:
#+BEGIN: columnview :hlines 1 

#+END
> and another would contain only task and task-lead in ascending
> order. 

* other propts 
:PROPERTIES:
:COLUMNS:  %40prop_3 %Prop_4
:END:
#+BEGIN: columnview :hlines 1 

#+END

you can change the order with M-x org-sort

Sorry, my bad. I attach an example file below, based on your ideas, and
put a subheading with the desired result below the actual result. Hope
this clarifies a bit. :)
