Hide Table Column

Post by jstevens »

Is it possible to hide a table column? I do not want to delete the column.

No, that is not possible in PPT.
A possible workaround is to duplicate the slide and then hide the (entire) original slide.
On the copied (visible) slide, delete the unnecessary column.

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

If it is a standard (Word-style) table: set the left and right cell margins to 0, then change the column width to 0. PowerPoint will change it to a small positive number, so the column will remain visible, but it's close enough to hidden.

If it is an inserted Excel table: yes, you can hide it like any Excel column.
