Do you want to delete the entire column, or just the contents of the column?
Are the columns to be deleted the same each month, or are they truly random and change each month?
If the latter, how do you know which one's to delete?

;1604370]HI all,

Hi Ron,

Thanks for your reply. I need to generate the reports tweice a month. i export the reports from Ms-Access.

I need to delete the columns from the excel. same columns for all the reports i generate.
Random means.. the columns are not in order like col A, col B ..... first col A , THEN COL C OR COL K LIKE THAT..

I want to delete the columns with data which i dont need for my reports.

If you need any further details please let me know. i can post the sample columns as well.

Thank you,

Hi
Your not replying to Ron
So this will delete columns, you can edit or add to it.
You could record a macro for what you want or we are not getting the question right.
A reply from you would be good

Forgot to post the code:
Sub DeleteColumn()
Range("A:A,C:C,E:E,H:H").Select
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
End Sub

I wish we could edit are post but anyway, here is a one line that will do the same.
Sub DeleteColumn()
Range("A:A,C:C,E:E,H:H").Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
End Sub
Don't need to select the columns
