Inserting and Deleting Columns
You can insert extra columns into a worksheet to make room for more data or formulas. Adding more columns, which gives the appearance of adding space between columns, can also make the worksheet easier to read. Alternatively, you might want to delete columns from a worksheet to close up some empty space or remove unwanted information.
Right-click on the column letter of the existing column where you want to insert a new column.
Click the Insert option. Excel automatically adds a new column.
To delete a column, right-click on the column number of the existing column that you want deleted.
Click the Delete option. Excel automatically removes the specified column.
