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

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.

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

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.
