    Trying to delete rows after last actual data row

    When I hit Ctrl/End the cursor moves to row 1046470. My actual valid data ends at row 2326.

    I had this problem in the past and got the following macro solution from help on the forum.

    This did not work this time - I may have still been on excel 2003 and am now on excel 2016.

    I'm attaching a text file of a macro I've been running to try to reset the worksheet to the valid last row.
    I commented out all of the different options I've tried after they failed to solve the issue.


    I also selected about 5000 rows and used the 'Clear All' option and then deleted them.

    I did a save and exit the workbook after each attempt but nothing has worked yet.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You still have to save the file for the CTRL + END to recognize the new last used row.

    Re: Trying to delete rows after last actual data row

    Hi Jonmo1,

    Thanks for the idea, but it did not work in this case. I ran that code exactly as is, then saved it and exited the workbook. When I re-opened it and did CTRL + END it went to row 1,046,470 again.

    This was a really odd problem and I still don't know what to do in case it re-occurs. I also tried selecting from row 2327 to end of file (1,046,070) then I did a 'Clear All' function followed by 'Delete Rows'
    and after saving that the workbook went from 8 kb to 188 kb.

    I decided this was de-railing me too much so I deleted the worksheet from the workbook, then copied a different worksheet to the same name as the one I deleted and did change alls to the formulas
    as appropriate.

    This work-around has worked.

    Thanks for your time and I will mark this solved.
