Hi Petrina, try the following: 1. Select column 2 and 4 by placing your cursor in column 2 and then holding down the shift key and doing one right arrow. 2. Then go into Format (alt and O) and down arrow to column and right here to open the submenu. 3. Down arrow here to Unhide and enter. You should be now back on your spreadsheet and hopefully column 3 will be showing.
