Excel done in a way that I haven't seen before

Hi all

I have received an excel workbook (many sheets).  Obviously the person who created the worksheets is very versed in Excel.

Please see the picture included.  This pic snippet came from the extreme left edge of the sheet.  You see the row numbers to the right of the picture.

On top I see 1,2,3  and  below that of course you see the sliders.

I can do what this person does with vba.   The controls hide rows and columns.

My question :  What is this?  I can't find vba code.  I dug  around the sheet looking for some sort of addon that could produce this?

Thank you for your help.

What you are seeing are row and column groupings. Look on the Data tab in the Outline section for the grouping controls.

It's called Grouping and is generally setup manually. See here for more info.

Got it!
Thank you both.
I could not taint the rivalry  by awarding equal points even though both correct answers were separated by two seconds. :)
In the best spirit of competition and with my sincere gratitude I will give the points to Kevin.
Thank you!
