    Deleting unwanted colums on a worksheet

    I need to know how to delete unwanted coulums on a worksheet. I remember
    being taught this in school 10 years ago but i guess its been pushed out of
    my memory after all this time. All the extra colums are slowing down our
    programs. any help would be appreciated.

    You cannot "delete" columns. Perhaps they are formatted so you should select
    all of the unwanted columns by putting the cursor on the column label>hold
    the shift key>goto the last to delete>touch the delete key>save.

    You may then hide the columns

    You should only get that if you were trying to insert columns where there
    may be something in the last column.
    Use ctrl+end to find the last.
