Delete Hidden Rows in a Workbook

Add to Favorites
This macro will delete hidden rows from every worksheet in an entire workbook. However, note that this will only delete one hidden row from a group at once. This means that if you have rows 3-9 hidden on a sheet and rows 45-55 hidden on the same sheet, the last hidden rows (row 9 and row 55) will be deleted on that worksheet. This means that the entire section of rows 3-9 etc. will not be deleted in one pass. Obviously if you are working with workbook that relies heavily on hidden data and hidden rows, this might not be the best macro.

Where to install the macro:  Module

Delete Hidden Rows

Sub DeleteHiddenRows_Workbook()

'This Microsoft Excel Macro will remove hidden rows from
'all worksheets in a workbook.

For i = 1 To Worksheets.Count
If Worksheets(i).Visible Then
Worksheets(i).Select
ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Select
k = ActiveCell.Row
For j = 1 To k
If Rows(j).Hidden Then
Rows(j).Hidden = False
Rows(j).Delete
End If
Next j
End If
Next i
If Worksheets(1).Visible Then Worksheets(1).Select

End Sub
