I think I'm going to feel dumb when I get an answer to this but here goes. My wife sent me a spreadsheet because she couldn't see column A and wanted me to fix it. Simple. I typed "A1" into the box for naming ranges (to the left of the formula box), pressed "Enter" and then clicked on "Unhide colums" (Home tab, Cells group, Format, Hide & Unhide, Unhide Columns). Didn't work. Then I thought maybe the person who created the spreadsheet reduced the width of column A to 0 or 0.1 so I checked column width. It is 3.43. Now I don't know what do to. There are definitely values in the column because I scrolled down column A after navigating to A1 and values show up in the formula bar. I create a workaround by inserting a column and then putting a formula in that column that brings over the value from the same row in column A but I still want to know how to see column A.
