I am not able to see columns F and G. There is no double line showing as it would if the columns were hidden but I did try to unhide them with no success.
Can anyone suggest how to resolve this?

@Rich99 , it's the same. When you hide the column the only what Excel does is set the width of such column to zero. Two vertical lines shall indicate such column, was it hide or manually set to zero width. Unhide shall work in both cases. However, sometimes doesn't.
I'd try to select columns from E to H and set column width to any reasonable one, e.g. 8 (Home->Format->Column Width)

@Rich99 , you are right, I didn't catch your idea. If column width is 0.1 it's practically invisible and at the same time not hidden.

@Sergei BaklanI tried selecting the columns around the missing ones and setting the column width to 15 and it didn't work.
This is a banking file and I was reluctant to go the "undo" route because I was afraid of losing data but I finally did try it and after several udos the columns reappeared.
I'd still like to know what happened in case it happens again.
Thanks for everyone's input.

@Neilphi , it's hard to say what it was exactly without sample file. As a comment, if you are not sure in operations better to do the copy of your file and test on it.
Anyway, glad to know you resolved the issue.

i have experienced this issue before .
unhidden Columns but still disappeared !
This is due to Freeze option :
in order to solve the issue : first unfreeze the sheet.
waiting for your reply.

This worked for me.
I needed to select the column using arrow keys or name field.
The columns width was set to ("") which gave it no size even after hiding/unhiding.
Changing the size to 30 units after following your instruction resolved the issue for me.
