Print worksheet with the hidden rows and columns

In Excel Online, when you print a worksheet with hidden rows or columns those hidden rows and columns won’t be printed. If you want to include the hidden rows and columns, you’ll need to unhide them before you print the worksheet.

You can tell if rows or columns are hidden either by the missing header labels or by the double lines as shown in this picture.

double lines between rows and columns indicate hidden rows or columns

Here’s how you can unhide rows or columns:

  1. Select the range of headers surrounding the hidden rows or columns. In this example, select all row headers between 2 and 7 to unhide rows 3 and 6.

  2. Right-click the selection and pick Unhide Rows (for columns, pick Unhide Columns).

  3. Click File > Print.

  4. Click Print for a print preview.
