I am trying to re-set the last active cell on an Excel 2002 worksheet (in
this particular sheet it should be cell DA197). I have used both the methods
described in the Knowledge Base article (deleting rows and columns and
re-saving; and the Excess Format Cleaner add-in).
Deleting the rows and columns does not work; using the Excess Format Cleaner
does not work either and it then also hides the rows from 198 to 65536 - but
does not do the same for the columns.
I have checked that there is no protection on the worksheet.
