    When I try to delete either in Excel 2016 I get a message that tells me to unhide the sheet. The sheet is there in front of me, the "hide/unhide" says nothing is hidden and I am confused. Can this be resolved?

    Also, how do sheets get hidden without my doing anything knowingly?

    Thanks

    Do the easiest thing
    Select and delete the data of the sheet
    Then try to delete the sheet
    If the problem still exists, delete the document by moving data to another file

    Hope it helps!

    Thank you very much for your response; I'll try it. I use Excel only when forced to do so, so I am unfamiliar with its nuances. I am accustomed to right clicking my mouse and then clicking"delete" to delete a sheet.

    This "hide, unhide" is totally foreign to me also. Can you enlighten me a bit about it?

    Thank you, again, for takng time out to help; it is greatly appreciated!
