Good Day,
The following VBA code can help you delete all hidden rows and columns of active worksheet:

Sub deletehidden()
For lp = 256 To 1 Step -1
If Columns(lp).EntireColumn.Hidden = True Then Columns(lp).EntireColumn.Delete Else
For lp = 65536 To 1 Step -1
If Rows(lp).EntireRow.Hidden = True Then Rows(lp).EntireRow.Delete Else
End Sub
