Lost part of my spread sheet

Postby pganey » Mon Feb 24, 2020 9:18 pm

I know someone is going to say that this is a dumb question but, it is what it is. I have a rather large spreadsheet. I left clicked on the border for column Q and drug it left covering up everything before column E. Now that I have finished going over all the data I'm ready to uncover the hidden columns but can't figure out how to do it. If I drag on the left side of Q it makes collum E wider, if I drag on the right side of Q it makes Q wider. If somebody could tell me how to get my data back I sure would appreciate it.

Forget the border. Place cursor in the top margin bar and select E and Q by dragging from one to the other; right click and select Show from the popup.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the User Guides. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

While I appreciate your ass hole suggestion, I read the manual and apparently was not smart enough to find the solution. I came here for assistance as a last resort.

I have already given the solution in my earlier posting in this thread.

Please be polite and respectful to those who offer their time to help you.
