Microsoft Project Tips: How to Unhide Columns in a Gantt Chart

Unlike Microsoft Excel, Project doesn’t have an unhide feature. When you hide a column in Microsoft Office Project, the column is only removed from view, not deleted from your plan. Also, hiding a column doesn’t remove any information from your plan.

 

To bring the column back again, you need to insert the column like you would with any new column. Any custom formatting that you applied to a previously hidden column will need to be re-applied to the inserted column.

 

  1. In a sheet view, select the column to the right of where you want to show the column.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Column.
  3. Select the Field name you would like to display.
