If you want to display or print only certain columns for your datasheet, you can hide the columns that you don't want displayed. For example, if you are working with a database of contact information, you may want to see only the full name and e-mail address for each contact. You can create this view by hiding all other columns.

Hide columns

  1. Click the heading for the column that you want to hide.

    To select adjacent columns, hold down SHIFT and click additional column headers.

    Note: You cannot select nonadjacent columns. Select any additional columns and hide those separately.

  2. Right-click the column header, and then click Hide Fields on the shortcut menu.

Show columns

  1. Right-click any column header, and then click Unhide Fields on the shortcut menu.

  2. In the Unhide Columns dialog box, select the check box next to each column that you want to show, and then click Close.
