What control key do you use in Excel to collapse columns?

I need to collapse columns in Excel, everything I have tried has not worked.


Answer by  hems (160)

First select the columns that you need to collapse. Then you press ctrl+Y to collapse the columns. or you can use data->Group and Outline option to collapse.

You need to use the Data > Group > Outline Function. The shortcut for this is Shift + ALT + Right Arrow. This will insert a [-] above the highlighted column, which can be toggeled between [-] and[+] to hide / unhide the column.

1) Select the columns or rows to be hidden, right click on the numbers and hit Hide. 2) Or, after selecting, click Data -> Group.
