In this tutorial, you will learn how to move a column in google sheets.
It can be frustrating to realize data columns in Google Sheets are out of order. At first it may seem like a lot of work to arrange your data correctly, but there’s no need to manually copy and past your data to reorder columns: You can move columns in Google Sheets easily with just a few clicks by following these steps:
Click on the column header for the column you want to move. The entire column will highlight to show it’s selected
Click and drag the column header to move the column right or left in the spreadsheet. A vertical grey line will highlight the location the column will move to when you release the mouse
When the grey line is where you want it, release the mouse and the column will move to that location
Repeat as needed till all columns are in the desired location
Note you can move multiple adjacent columns in this way. Simply hold down shift while selecting them in Step 1
