I need a way to script the automatic hiding of select columns B, J, M, O, and P (or select rows) in this online spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10hHAoSGpQd5nOu2YXY89_cY3Mjbw89z0qk6EFVYJuZY/edit#gid=0 for any user that the sheet has not been specifically shared to. I need to do that in such a way that they cannot be seen at all by the general public, but so that the rest of the columns can be seen by the general public.

It will require google scripting, I think.

Assistance is greatly appreciated!!

I am not a scripting expert, but I think what you want to do is pro-grammatically (script) create a new SHEET within the spreadsheet that just contains the public data.

This public data sheet can then be published to the web.

That doesn't work because the public sheet would need to be edited by select individuals.
