Hello,

Is there a easy macro way to delete empty colums?
Maybe somthing similar as with autofilter, but then for colums?

Thanks for your tips!

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Maybe I should have indicated that these are raw data reports, with multiple empty columns.

I have tried things like: If columns("a:zz") = "" then delete, but can't get it to work.
Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hello roaze2000,
Here's something you can try.
Code:
Public Sub DeleteCompletelyBlankColumns()
Dim Col As Long
Dim Rng As Range
Set Rng = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Col = Rng.Columns.Count To 1 Step -1
  If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Rng.Columns(Col).EntireColumn) = 0 Then Rng.Columns(Col).EntireColumn.Delete
Next Col
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
