Thread: trouble hiding columns

    Question trouble hiding columns

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to hide a column using the below method:

    Range("D:MY1").EntireColumn.Hidden = True

    For which i receive the "Method Range of object global failed"

    When I change to this: Sheets("TEST").Range("D:MY1").EntireColumn.Hidden = True

    I get : Application defined or object defined error.

    However in a separate procedure I have used:

    Range("2:361").EntireRow.Hidden = True

    Which has worked completely fine, hence why I'm, confused this method has not worked for columns.

    I also much prefer referencing to columns in numbers, so if anyone could also let me know if that's possible here that would be great!

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Range("D:MY1") doesn't return a valid range because you have it 'from all of Col D to the cell MY1'

    Try one of these

    Range("D1:MY1").EntireColumn.Hidden = True

    Range("D:MY").Hidden = True
