How to unhide or show columns & rows in Excel?

In order to prevent affecting other cells in calculations or other works, sometimes we need to hide unwanted columns and rows. This article explains how to unhide or show all columns & rows in Excel.

Step 1: Select the range containing the hidden column and rows, or press Ctrl + A to select the entire worksheet.

Step 2: Move to Home > Format > Hide/Unhide > Unhide Rows or Unhide columns. See screenshot:

Note: You cannot unhide all the rows and columns at a time but have to display them individually.

    Hi, Is it possible to include a show / hide instruction as part of an IF statement? Ie make it so that if the response is YES, the show data in column D and E and if response is NO, then hide columns D and E.

    Thanks,
