I have a checkbox if the user wants to display columns in a separate worksheet (the worksheet name is "BS").
The following code works to hide the columns on the SAME worksheet where the macro is called (this worksheet name is "Start Here".

Sub AdjustDisplayColumns()
    If Range("C15").Value = "x" Then
        Columns("C:F").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
    Else
        Columns("C:F").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
    End If
End Sub

How can I change this to hide / unhide the columns in the other worksheet ?

You may try something like this......

Sub AdjustDisplayColumns()
Dim sws As Worksheet, dws As Worksheet
Set sws = Sheets("Start Here")
Set dws = Sheets("BS")
If sws.Range("C15").Value = "x" Then
   dws.Columns("C:F").Hidden = False
Else
   dws.Columns("C:F").Hidden = True
End If
End Sub
