A column may refer to any of the following:
1. A column is a vertical series of cells in a chart, table, or spreadsheet. Below is an example of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet with column headers (column letter) A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. As you can see in the image, the last column H is highlighted in red, and the selected cell (D8), is in the D column.
How are columns and rows labeled?
All spreadsheet programs, including Microsoft Excel, rows are labeled using numbers (e.g., 1 to 1,048,576). All columns are labeled with letters starting with the letter A and then incrementing by a letter after the final letter Z. For example, after the letter Z, the next column is AA, AB, AC, ..., AZ and then incrementing to BA, BB, BC, etc. to the last column XFD.
When working with a cell, you combine the column with the row. For example, the very first cell is in column A and on row 1, so the cell is labeled as A1.

2. With a document, a column is a container that holds text. Having a document with multiple columns allows shorter lines of text and is a more presentable method of displaying a list with dozens or hundreds of items.
4. When describing a newspaper or magazine, a column or periodical is a regularly featured opinion done by a columnist. For example, a column related to computers could cover computer-related questions, new technology, and other computer-related information the columnist enjoys.
