- [Voiceover] Many Excel users are familiar with the idea…of hiding a column or hiding a row.…I've got a worksheet here and I'm ready to print it,…but I really don't want to print…the Social Security Numbers or phone numbers,…so I'll click and drag across columns D and E…and then simply right-click and Hide.…And starting in Excel 2013, there is an indicator…whenever there's a hidden column…between the other columns that are visible,…a slightly thicker line, for example,…as we see here between columns C and F.…At a later time, of course,…we may want to bring back the data.…
We'll simply drag across here and do one of two things,…either right-click and then Hide.…That's what most people do, or maybe slightly faster,…after dragging across, double-click the boundary,…and the data's back.…And similarly, on a list to the left here,…a different worksheet, I'm ready to print this,…but it turns out I don't want to print…the admin training group.…They're gonna be transferred into a different city,…so we don't want their names in this printout,…
