Default Unhide column - why doesn't click unhide column work?

I've read all the workarounds for unhiding columns, and understand how to
unhide. However, the documentation says to highlight a column on either side
of the hidden column(s) and then click on unhide. That process consistently
doesn't work. Stretching the hidden column makes it appear, dragging across
from bordering column to bordering column (thus also selecting the hidden
columns) works, using Go To works, but the prescribed process does not. Why?
I'm using Excel 2003.

Thanks.

The documentation isn't correct if you read it literally, as you seem to be
doing.

"To display hidden columns, select the column adjacent to either side of the
columns you want to display."

The writer meant to select the hidden column(s) by selecting across the
adjacent visible ones. But even that isn't too helpful when it comes to
column A or IV.
