If you have a long list of data that contains blank rows that you want to delete, you have several options.
Suppose you receive a large list of data that contains blank rows and you want to remove them without affecting the order of the list. This technique will allow you to delete all rows that have blank cells in a particular column.
Here's how you can delete hundreds, or even thousands, of blank rows in mere seconds...
1) First, before you make any drastic changes to any workbook always make sure you have a backup copy or a recently saved copy in case you need to restore the original data.
2) Now, select the cells in one column from the top of your list to the bottom;
3) Make sure that all the blank cells in this selected range are the rows you want to delete;
4) Press the F5 key on your keyboard;
4) On the Go To dialog, click the Special... button;
5) Choose the Blanks option and click OK. This will select all blank cells in the range you had previously selected;
6) Now simply right click on of the selected cells, select Delete, Entire Row and click OK.
If you work with large lists of data in Excel, this tip will save you a lot of time. If you don't work with large lists often, remember this tip anyway, because sooner or later you're going to need this.
