How to hide certain columns for certain users on Excel

In a shared workbook how would you make a column hidden and not viewable to certain users whilst still making it accessible for the other users to view and edit it?

RE: How to hide certain columns for certain users on Excel

Hi Siobhan

Thanks for getting in touch. There isn't a straightforward solution, but there are options.

One workaround might be to unshare the work book, hide (or unhide columns), lock (with password) and reshare - giving those people who need to edit the workbook the password.

To protect your sheet, go to Review > Protect Sheet. You can add a password to this dialogue box.

Kind regards
