How can I save only some columns of a spreadsheet in csv format?
The situation arises because I need to transform a spreadsheet by modifying a single column according to a formula (which is =MOD(A1-152, 360) ), and then save the spreadsheet with the modified column but not the original one. In more detail, the method is to create a new column, enter the formula into it, and then (hopefully) save as csv. If I delete the original column before saving, the formula becomes an error. If I hide the original column and then save as csv, the original column is saved along with the modified one.
What to do?
