Default Unhide Column

Yes, to unhide a column would seem to be a basic task. However, my wife sent
me a file from work that has column C hidden. I used the "right-click,
unhide" method, but it didn't work. The file is not read-only. Is there
another way to unhide a column, or am I just missing something? As usual,
thank you everyone for your help.

Gary,
Thanks for the input, but I had already tried your second method and was
unsuccessful. Unfortunately your first didn't either.

Default Unhide Column

To my opinion col. C is not hidden - it must have been narrowed down to 1
Pixel, or so.
Try to grab the column border until you see the yellow tool-tip as in the
picture - and drag it in order to bring col. C back to its normal width.

Default Unhide Column

It's not protected by any chance is it? Did you also try clicking the
Format-Column-Unhide menu?
