Because of different technology and design between various versions of Excel. Older versions of Excel have less capability for many reasons, including the capability of the computers for which they were designed (e.g. Processor Speed, Amount of RAM, etc.).

Can not be done. Your version of Excel has a fixed maximum number of columns available. However, if you just want to include more available columns in an existing worksheet, just insert columns, as needed.



Microsoft Excel 2013 worksheets contain a maximum of 1,048,576 rows and 16,384 columns.

That depends on the version you have. Up to and including Excel 2003, the standard amount of columns has been 256 and there has been 65,536 rows. That makes 16,777,216 cells. Since Excel 2007 the maximum number of rows per worksheet is now 1,048,576 and the number of columns is 16,384. That makes 17,179,869,184 cells.


For .xls (used by Excel 2003 and earlier), rows 65536, columns 256 For .xlsx (Excel 2007 and 2010),rows 1048576, columns 16384


No, it can contain a lot more. Microsoft Excel has 16384 columns available in each worksheet and you can use all of them if you wanted to, though you are unlikely to use anything near that amount.


It's been a while since I used Excel 2003 but I believe there are a maximum of 256 available columns.



Up to Excel 2003 there were 65536 rows and 256 columns. Microsoft Office Excel 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 worksheets contains a maximum of 1,048,576 rows and 16,384 columns.


The maximum worksheet size is: 1,048,576 rows (across) by 16,384 columns (down). That is 17,179,852,800 cells.


The original version of Excel had a maximum limit of 16,777,216 (16.8 million) cells within a single worksheet and that continued to be the worksheet limit until it was later expanded in version 2007 to the current limit of 17,179,869,184 (17.2 billion) cells. Originally within each worksheet, Excel provided columns A to IV, which is 256 (2^8) columns; and 65,536 rows (2^16); therefore 256 x 65,536 = 16,777,216 (2^24). As mentioned, in version 2007 the worksheet maximum size limits were greatly expanded, providing columns A to XFD, which is 16,384 (2^14) columns; and 1,048,576 rows (2^20); therefore 16,384 x 1,048,576 = 17,179,869,184 (or 2^34).

It depends which Spreadsheet program you're using. The maximums in Open Office are 65536 rows and 1024 columns. Microsoft Works limits you to 16383 rows and 282 columns.


The original version of Excel up through version 2003 had a maximum limit of 16,777,216 (16.8 million) cells within a single worksheet and that continued to be the worksheet limit until it was later expanded in version 2007 to the current limit of 17,179,869,184 (17.2 billion) cells.

45 columns is the maximum allowed, but that is far more than you need or is practical to use.


Since Excel 2007, continuing to Excel 2016, the maximum number of rows per worksheet is now 1,048,576 and the number of columns is 16,384. That makes 17,179,869,184 cells.


The maximum per spreadsheet is 1024 columns.


The maximum zoom capacity in Microsoft Word 2003is 500%.


In Excel 2003, a worksheet can have a maximum of 65,536 (64k) rows by 256 columns. This is 2^16 x 2^8 = 2^24 = 16,777,216 possible cells.


One cell in Excel can hold 32,767 characters.The maximum you can see in a cell on the worksheet is 1,024, but all 32,767 are shown in the formula bar.


Maximum sheet size is 1024 columns by 1048576 rows.


The worksheet limit of 17,179,869,184 (17.2 billion) cells was established in Excel version 2007 and was extended as the same limits found in version 2010. The worksheet maximum size limits of version 2007 (and version 2010) provided columns A to XFD, which is 16,384 (2^14) columns; and 1,048,576 rows (2^20); therefore 16,384 x 1,048,576 = 17,179,869,184 (or 2^34). Originally within each worksheet for all version prior to 2007 (e.g. 2003 and before) Excel provided columns A to IV, which is 256 (2^8) columns; and 65,536 rows (2^16); therefore 256 x 65,536 = 16,777,216 (2^24), or 16.8 million cells.


No. A workbook can contain many worksheets.
