How to quickly check if a sheet is empty in Excel?

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2020-07-23

If there are some empty sheets in a huge workbook, how can you quickly check if a sheet is empty in the workbook, then delete them? In Excel, there is a built-in function to determine if a sheet is empty or not, but here, I introduce a VBA code to you to check if a sheet is empty.

To check if a sheet is empty, you can use below macro code to quickly determine if a sheet is blank.

1. Enable a sheet you want to check if is empty, press Alt + F11 key to open Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, and click Insert > Module to create a new Module.
doc check if sheet empty 1

2. In the blank script, paste below macro code to it. See screenshot:

VBA: Check if a sheet is empty

Sub CheckSheetEmpty()
    If WorksheetFunction.CountA(ActiveSheet.UsedRange) = 0 And ActiveSheet.Shapes.Count = 0 Then
        MsgBox "Sheet is empty", vbInformation, "KuTools For Excel"
        MsgBox "Sheet is not empty", vbInformation, "KuTools For Excel"
    End If
End Sub

doc check if sheet empty 2

3. Save the code and press F5 key to run the code, and a dialog will pop to remind you that the sheet is empty or not.
