Why can't I close "Custom Views" for original views?

I hided some rows in Excel, and then added one custom views namefor it. But 
when I click"Close" the custom views to see the original views that contains 
un-hided rows, the rows can not be visible.

What is the problem? What can I do?

One of the shortcomings of the XL help files on this feature, is that they 
never mention that there's *no way back* to the original worksheet display 
You'll have to manually "unchange" individually all your changes in order to 
return to the original display.

SO, the *first* thing to do when starting to create "Custom Views", is to 
assign a name to the original sheet display, say something like "orig" (no 

Now, after you're finished with creating all your other views, you can click 
on "orig" to return to the default sheet display.

If you're intending to produce many different views, or you'll be moving 
back and forth between views often, you might wish to insert a "views" 
window on your toolbar or menu bar.
This window will display the name of the current view, and will allow you to 
change views by simply expanding the window and clicking on the name of any 
of the other existing views in the sheet.

Right click in the toolbar and choose "Customize".
Under the "Commands" tab, in the left window click on "View".
In the right window, click and drag the "Custom View" window to either the 
toolbar, or the menu bar (usually more room there).

Now you can easily navigate between views.

How to password protect hidden columns and custom views in Excel

Alternatively, I would like to create a custom view that hides these columns and then password protect the view. I can't figure out how to do this. Any help?

Keep losing my custom views!

However, it disappears from the "current view" drop down and radio- button lists. If I change the view, I can not get the custom one back.

Custom views and formulas
Hoping someone can tell me if my understanding of custom views is correct. I have been given a spreadsheet of around 100 rows. The rows all contain a dollar amount in column "N".

My concern is this; there is a total at the bottom of column N, which is a basic sum, giving the total of all the dollar amounts in column "N".

I am trying to setup a custom view for Accounts using a filter that dynamically reads that particular users business unit. Can you use dynamic CRM values as part of the filter statement? Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks. you cannot do this. I recommend you build a report instead. One way to do this would be to add a custom field on the account form where you or users enter the business unit. The view could then see that.
