New to Calc, I want to limit the number of rows and columns visible to those I actually need

The rest are entirely redundant but always always there, it’s most annoying.

Many thanks

This is the basic idea of spreadsheet. Otherwise use Writer and create a table with specified number of rows and columns.

Thank you kindly

Say you only want to see column A to E, select the F column (by clicking on F in the column header) and press CTRL + SHIFT + RIGHT to select all columns after F, then right click on any column header and click Hide Columns.

Do the same with the rows if needed.

Thank you kindly

Thank you so much! This was exactly the information I needed. There are so many other convoluted “solutions” out there and yours was not only easy but also SUCCESSFUL!!
