:whistling: This is probably a silly question, but...hey...I don't know so I'mma ask!

A coworker of mine is working on an Excel spreadsheet and has gotten to the last column (IV). Can you add more columns after that or do you just have to continue on a new sheet?

Never had that problem before so IDK.

I'm no expert, so I'm going to ask a silly question in response to your silly question.....
Did you try Insert-> columns?

Yep. I tried that. I assume you have to start a new sheet, but I thought I'd throw the question out there.

Excel has a maximum number of rows and columns. Once you get there, you are done.

Worksheet size (maximum): 65,536 rows by 256 columns


Column IV is the 256th column. If your friend needs more columns, he'll need a new worksheet.
