Besides, you can right click on the tab (worksheet) you want to hide or unhide. Then select the option Hide (you have selected several worksheets together and then select Unhide option, if you want to unhide a single worksheet. You can only unhide a single worksheet at a time) and you are done. This hidden worksheet will not be shown; but data with this are still connected with other worksheet if they were connected before hiding.
