Hi Tom, all

That is brilliant!!  So far i have been doing an insane method of
inserting an empty column and then pasting the copied one into it and
deleting the old one.  Excel seemed much easier as it's easy to just
drag the column to a new position.  However now Calc seems even

I had to combine Brian's and Nino's answer.  Brian's didn't seem to
work for me until i saw Nino's saying to move the mouse arrow down
into the data part rather than trying to use the header part.

So it's not completely intuitive to Excel users but it's not far off

I have been using the same insane 8 step method...

Indeed Calc's hidden feature is better than Excel, but few users will find

You are right about combining the instructions. The proper way to do it is:

1 - Left click a row/column header to mark it,
2 - Left click somewhere inside the marked row/column (into the data area,
not the header)
3 - Drag it to the new position
4 -  Hold down the Alt key and release the left mouse button (you can
release the Alt button now :) )

Thanks to all that contributed!
