I'd like to share a spreadsheet with people outside of my organization but want to hide columns that are just for internal use only.  How can I accomplish this?

Hi dawnbmi Unfortunately hiding columns is not particularly secure. Even with protection on lets say column A is hidden. anyone can see what's in A1 by typing =A1 into another cell Also sheet protection is quite easy to hack
