This action inserts one or more columns in a spreadsheet.
The Insert Columns action can be configured using the following properties:
- Insert Where:
This option specifies where to insert the columns. Options are:
- Before (Default)
- Number of Columns:
The number of columns to insert.
- Set as Named Range:
Range name options are:
- Range Name:
Has two options, Auto or Named.
Auto gives the range a name which is number. The first Auto-numbered range will have number 1, the next number 2 etc.
Note that the number may change if additional Auto-numbered ranges are inserted before this step (on the same page).
Named gives the range a fixed and explicitly stated name, which has several advantages:
- It is easier to remember what the named range identifies if it has a well-chosen name
- An explicitly named range is not affected if another named range is inserted before it
- If you use the same name again, the name will simply be made to refer to the
new range (useful for stateful in-page looping)
