Hiding and Protecting Columns in Excel

There are a few different ways to hide and protect columns in Excel. One way is to use the Hide feature. To do this, first select the column or columns that you want to hide. Then, go to the Home tab and click Format. In the Cells section, click Hide & Unhide and then choose Hide Columns. The column or columns will be hidden from view.

Another way to hide columns is to use the Group feature. To do this, first select the column or columns that you want to hide. Then, go to the Data tab and click Group. In the Grouping dialog box, click OK. The column or columns will be hidden from view.

Note: If you want to protect your data so that others cannot unhide hidden columns or change grouped data, you'll need to use password protection. For more information on how to do this, see the "Protecting Your Data" section below.
