I've got a worksheet that is blank, and the Ctrl-End key combination jumps to cell A1. I originally pasted 5 colums by 138 rows of data into this spreadsheet, then erased the columns completely by using 'Ctrl+-'. I've also selected the entire sheet and used Edit->Clear All. All this to no avail. I have an empty spreadsheet that takes up 900 KB, but zips to 30 KB
Any suggestions on how to reduce the file size is welcome.

I'm at a quandry as to what's the best/fastest way to deserialize an

I ran a small test on xmlserializer and on a small file it performed 10
times worse then when I used the XMLDocument and deserialized the values
myself. Is the xmlserializer really that slow?
I'm expecting a file about 1 MB in length and if it's that slow on a 2 K
file then I can't phantom how it's going to behave on a 1 MB file.
Should I just skip the xmlserializer and XML Dom and go straight to
xmlreader and do the deserialization myself?
