void CollapseGroups(
    int level


Name Type Description
level Int32

A Int32 value that specifies the grouping level starting from which column groups should be collapsed.


If a worksheet has multiple grouping levels, you can use the CollapseGroups method to collapse column groups starting at the specified and subsequent levels. For example, the following code collapses all the groups except the first level:



If the level parameter is less than or equal to 1, the CollapseGroups method collapses all the column groups. You can also collapse all column groups in a worksheet using the ColumnCollection.CollapseAllGroups methods.

If the level parameter is greater than the maximum grouping level specified in a worksheet, the CollapseGroups method expands all the column groups. Another way to expand all column groups in a worksheet at once is to call the ColumnCollection.ExpandAllGroups method.
