Delete Empty Rows in Excel Using VBA
Here we’ve got a data set with the Names of some students and their Marks in English in the annual examination of a school called Sunflower Kindergarten.
But mistakenly, some empty rows have been created within the data set which we want to delete.
Today I’ll show you how you can delete the empty rows from this data set using a Macro (VBA Code).
Step 1: Open the VBA Window to Delete Empty Rows in Excel
➤ Press ALT+F11 on your keyboard. The VBA window will open.
