2 Steps to Turn Off Sheet View in Excel
Excel offers some easy steps to turn off the sheet view. To show this, we have prepared a dataset named Dataset to Turn Off Sheet View which has column headers as Branch Name, Sales Rep, Product Name and Sales.
We’ll now discuss how to turn off sheet view.
Step-01: Activating Sheet View
To understand the steps of turning off the sheet view, firstly, we need to activate the Sheet View. Activating sheet view is another topic of interest. Here, the dataset we are dealing with is activated already which we can understand by seeing the following things.
- AutoSave is turned On.
- New option is available in the Sheet View box under View.
- Columns and Rows are marked with black color.
Step-02: Using Sheet View Option to Turn Off Sheet View
In this step we’ll see how to turn off sheet view. To show this, we have made a dataset where we can see the turn on of the sheet view. In the following database of Turn Off Sheet View we have filtered Branch 1 from the Branch Name header and also we have filtered the Sales in descending manner. We can understand this by seeing the filter icon in these two column headers. The dataset is like this.
Suppose we want to turn off this sheet view.
- Firstly, go to View > click Exit from Sheet View box.
- Immediately, we’ll see that the sheet view has turned off and Default view has appeared.
We’ll understand this by watching the removal of black color of Columns and Rows.
How to Switch Between Sheet Views
We can switch between sheet views very easily. We need to work on the following dataset to show this.
- Firstly, go to View. We’ll see from the Sheet View box that the current sheet view is of Sales in Descending Manner.
- Secondly, click on the icon of the sheet view name.
- Thirdly, choose any option from there. We have selected Sales in Branch 1 i.e. we want to switch from Sales in Descending Manner to Sales in Branch 1.
Consequently, we’ll see that the sheet view is switched to Sales in Branch 1.
How to Delete Sheet View
We can permanently delete a sheet view easily. We’ll work on the following dataset to show this. Here, in this dataset we can see that the sheet view is for Sales in Branch 1. We want to delete this sheet view.
- Firstly, go to View > select Options.
Eventually, a Sheet View Option window will appear.
- Secondly, choose Sales in Branch 1 > press Delete.
Consequently, a window of Delete this sheet view? will appear.
