The Group Columns Shortcut in Excel You Need to Know

If you work with data in Excel, you know how important it is to be able to organize and view that data in a way that makes sense for your needs. One of the most helpful features in Excel is the ability to group data together so that you can more easily see and work with related information.

The Group Columns feature in Excel allows you to take a selected range of cells and group them together so that they behave as one unit. This is especially helpful when you have a large amount of data and you need to be able to focus on specific parts of it.

To use the Group Columns feature, first select the range of cells that you want to group together. Then, click the Data tab on the ribbon and click the Group Columns button.

You'll see a dialog box appear that asks you how you want to group the data. You can choose to group by rows or columns, and you can also choose to add subtotals and outlines.

Once you've made your selections, click OK and your data will be grouped together. You can then collapse and expand the groups to focus on the data that you want to see.

The Group Columns feature is a great way to quickly organize and view your data in Excel. Give it a try the next time you're working with a large data set!
