methods to remove blank rows
Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet application that is standard with the Microsoft Office Suite. As a
spreadsheet program, it is very useful for organizing information into different rows and columns.
However, getting information into the Excel spreadsheet can be a time-consuming process. As
Excel works using cells, entering information can be slow because the correct cell must be
chosen each time information is entered. It can also make it challenging to edit the data inside the
Excel spreadsheet. Cutting, copying, and pasting can get confusing in Excel due to all of the lines
that show up around the data you are copying and where it is being pasted.
There is always the traditional method of cleaning up an Excel spreadsheet. To do this, first open
the spreadsheet that you will organize. Then scan over the spreadsheet to find any rows or
columns that are blank. To delete any blank rows or columns, first locate the row or column
identifier. For the columns this is a letter, beginning with A in the first column. For the rows this is

the Excel window. Choose the ‘Filter' option and then choose ‘Advanced Filter'. Within these
windows are options to filter out any empty cells in the spreadsheet.

searching for ‘How to Remove Blank Rows or Blank Columns from a Spreadsheet' yields a
program specifically written to meet your Excel file needs. The program is actually created to
operate within the Excel spreadsheet program itself, also known as a plugin. This means that
after opening Microsoft Excel, you will see the application shown within a tab in the ribbon bar
across the top of the Excel window. The tab that has the plugin will say ‘Add-Ins'. The plugin will
be displayed as ‘Remove Blanks'. After choosing the plugin, a new window will appear. This
window uses a classic user interface that allows even a basic computer user to learn and master
the software in a short amount of time. This new window displays the commands to eliminate
blank areas within the spreadsheet. First, choose which data you want to scan for blank rows and
columns. Then choose which parts of the spreadsheet you'd like to remove. There are three
options for cell removal: remove blank cells, remove blank columns, and remove blank rows.
Then click the ‘Remove Blanks Now' button to start the process.
