Excel question

After manipulating a very large database with subtotals and sorts I have now a lot of rows with nothing in them. Is it possible to delete these?

clock on the empty row number -then right click select delete. you can select more rows by holding shift and dragging mouse down over empty rows. remember if you make a mistake you can always - edit -undo

the final 'sum=' would have to be modified to the new row number

Try running this macro

Sub DelBl()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long
LR = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Find(what:="*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows).Row
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For i = LR To 1 Step -1
If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Rows(i)) = 0 Then Rows(i).Delete
Next i
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Assuming XL 2003 or earlier...

Press ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor, select Module from the Insert menu and paste the code into the white space on the right.

Press ALT + Q to return to your sheet, Tools > Macro > Macros, highlight DelBl and click the Run button.
