Having trouble with extra rows at the bottom of the doc

How do I delete the extra rows at the bottom of a doc.

I have inherited a document that has 60 rows of data and 3682 rows of empty cells that have the boarder set.
When I select and delete them, new ones reappear. I have turned the cell boards off and it still creates empty
cells with the boarder.

Is there any way to delete these rows?

Are you selecting and then deleting and then saving?

Excel has a habit of retaining "used" cells way beyond where you are currently

On a worksheet hit CRTL + END to see where you wind up.

If far below and to the right of your real used range then select the row
below where your real used range is and SHIFT + END + DownArrow.  This selects
all rows to the bottom of the sheet.  Edit>Delete>Entire Row.

Do the same for columns to the right of your range.

Repeat on all sheets.

Important step now.........SAVE the workbook.  In some cases it may be prudent
to also CLOSE after Saving then re-open.

There are other ways to reset the used range.  Debra Dalgleish has some code
at her website.

This shows up as a white cell within the highlighted area. press tab until the white box is in the column you want to sort by. ...

Stop Insert Row modifying formula data
I have a worksheet that grabs stock information via web queries. I always writes today�s information at the top of the page and to do thi it I insert a row using VBA and set the cells to the correct values. The problem is that I have a number of other worksheets using the dat from this stock information worksheet via lookups. And the insert ro automatically alters their formulas from something like this: =VLOOKUP(A3,'Historical Funds'!$B$4:$C$3000,2,FALSE) To this =VLOOKUP(A3,'Historical Funds'!$B$5:$C$3001,2,FALSE) Which causes a problem as then all my lookups miss the top...

Calculating text as values in a row

I want to obtain the total number from a text input, in a row (up to 31 cells wide) the following could be entered, FD, AM or PM. These have different values, FD=1, AM=0.5, PM=0.5. If one or more of the above are entered in any of the seperate 31 cells I want a total number. For example, if FD and AM were entered I would expect a total of 1.5. If there were 6 FD's and 2 PM's, I would expect a total of 7. The closest I have got is =SUMPRODUCT(...

Having trouble
I have a set of numbers, a-e. A usually equals e but can be less. B remains constant. C is the sum of A and B. C cannot exceed D. D remains constant I have tried the following formula in the box for A, but C ends up being less than D when I want it to equal D =IF(C>D,E-(C-D)) What am I doing wrong? Uhh, I'm a little slow, but; If you are putting this formula in A and it's the same "A" that is part of the "C=Sum A & B" then I think you have a circular reference. In other words, you're asking xl to resolve "A" by asking "If C> D&quo...

row spacing in custom drawn CListCtrl
I have noticed that row spacing in a custom drawn (not owner drawn) CListCtrl when run on Vista or Server 2008 is about 20% larger than on XP. Is there a way to reduce this spacing? Thanks in advance, Julijan Probably not easily; Vista uses a different font than XP, so you are probably seeing artifacts of the different font size (assuming that the Vista machine is running in an absoutely identical configuration to the XP machine, same size screen, same resolution, same default font name, etc.; if not, then there is no reason to expect they will be "the same", ever, anyway). ...
