We have an Access Application where we are using a Datasheet Form for managing a schedule.  There are quite a few columns, and we do have the functionality on the form for the User to show and hide columns.

Is there a way to build code so that when the user selects a button that the columns and rows are hidden and filter to create a view that is repeatable?

Can you explain a little more about how the code in the example knows which column to hide?

I would really like to understand how the code in the example knows which column to hide?

Is there a limit to the number of columns that it will hide?
