How to delete all hidden rows or columns in Excel?
If you have a large workbook with a lot of hidden rows and columns, and now the hidden data are unavailable, you would like to delete all of them. How could you quickly delete them?
If you use Excel 2007, 2010 or Excel 2013, it is easily for you to remove the unwanted hidden rows or columns. You can do it as follow steps:
1. If you us Excel 2007, please click Office Button on the top left corner, and then click Prepare > Inspect Document. See screenshot:
If you use Excel 2010/2013, please click File > Info > Check for Issues > Inspect Document, see screenshots:
In Excel 2013:
In Excel 2010:
2. Then a Document Inspector dialog box will appear, click Inspect button, and the hidden rows and columns in the whole workbook have been inspected, click Remove All button, see screenshot:
3. And then click Close button to close the dialog. And all of the hidden rows and columns in the workbook will be removed.
Notes: 1. If there are formulas to manipulate the data in your workbook and the formulas call for data from hidden rows and columns, then deleting that information will cause incorrect result.
2. With this function, you can delete all of the hidden rows and columns in the whole workbook.
If you just want to remove the hidden rows or columns in a worksheet, the following VBA code can help you. Please do as follows:
1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.
VBA code: 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 Next For lp = 65536 To 1 Step -1 If Rows(lp).EntireRow.Hidden = True Then Rows(lp).EntireRow.Delete Else Next End Sub
2. Then press F5 key to execute the code. And all the hidden rows and columns have been deleted in the active worksheet.
Note: If there are formulas to manipulate the data in your workbook and the formulas call for data from hidden rows and columns, then deleting that information will cause incorrect result.

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 7 years agoThanks! This is helpful! But it seems removing the hidden columns and rows are taking too long. Is that normal if there's a lot of data in the excel? Like say... 3000+ hidden rows or something? :D
