The IXlColumn object specifies an individual column in a worksheet and can be created using the IXlSheet.CreateColumn method. Use this object’s properties and methods to manage worksheet columns. For details, see the Rows and Columns section of examples.


When you finish working with the IXlColumn object, call the Dispose method to release all the resources used by the object. Otherwise, generated content is not written to the output file. You can also modify the IXlColumn object within the using statement (Using block in Visual Basic).


The example below demonstrates how to create and modify a column in a worksheet. To do this, use the IXlSheet.CreateColumn method. To specify where a created column should be located in a worksheet, pass a zero-based column index to the method as a parameter.

// Create a new worksheet.
using (IXlSheet sheet = document.CreateSheet())
    // Create the column "A" and set its width to 100 pixels.
    using (IXlColumn column = sheet.CreateColumn())
        column.WidthInPixels = 100;

    // Create the column D and set its width to 24.5 characters.
    using (IXlColumn column = sheet.CreateColumn(3))
        column.WidthInCharacters = 24.5f;
