I have two workbooks that are structured identically. In one workbook I have no difficulty hiding a group of columns. In the other workbook I get the message ?Unable to set the Hidden property of the Range class? when I try to hide the identical columns with the identical VBA code. Here?s the code used:

Range("AF:AL").Columns.Hidden = True 'Hide the entry What would normally trigger that message?:banghead:

Update: I just discovered that I also cannot hide the columns manually using the FORMAT tab. It gives me the error message "Cannot shift objects off sheet". I'll spend some time trying to find out where/what those objects are and see if I can clean it up. (I hate that message!!)
