Excel VB.Net : How to programatically hide unused columns and rows from worksheet

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am developing a VB.Net application that generates Excel spreadsheets.  In each spreadsheet, I want  to hide all unused columns and rows so that the user is presented with the minimum area to work with.

For example, one spreadsheet template has columns A-J and rows 1-100.  I want to hide all columns from K to whatever the end column is (which is Excel version dependent) and I want to hide all rows from 101 to the end row (which is also Excel version dependent).

What is the best way of doing this.
