Hello,
I would like to be able to remove all columns in a worksheet but three. Is this possible? I would just like columns A,B, and C. I do not want Excel to repopulate the area where other columns have been removed. Thanks in advance

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

When I need to omit columns I select all the colums I do not want and hide them. i.e., Select columns, go into format then column, then hide.

Hope that helps

Irazer, thanks for the reply. The problem is that it constantly repopulates the area. I just want three columns of cells thats it.

Thanks again bdunk

Irazers method seems to work for me.

It just leaves Col's A,B and C all the rest is a Grey sheet.

You do need to select Cols D to IV.

Good Luck

:wink:

All, I stand corrected. I did not realize that IV was the end. I thought it was infinite. I got it to work. Thanks so much.
