    I have some Excel files that only take up 50 - 100 rows, but the scroll bar on the side is very tiny (as if I had used the worksheet to the bottom). Is there a way to get rid of these unwanted rows at the end? I've highlighted and deleted them, but they just get replaced. Is there a simple way, withouht copying the data to a new file?

    Thanks!

    Copy and paste the cells into a new worksheet. By default, Excel opens a Workbook with 3 Worksheets. After copying andpasting the info, nad verifying that itlooks the way you want, then you can right-click the worksheet tab at the bottom and delte the old one.

    Thanks, but I didn't want to have to resize and format all the cells over again. I have done it this way, but was hoping for another way just to get rid of the extra rows.

    Anyone?
