    Are you completely deleting the rows/columns? or are you hitting
    Edit-->Clear--All, then saving?
    If not, perhaps your cells are still holding "dirtiness". Sometimes, you
    just need to copy all the worksheets to a new workbook to get rid of
    bloating.

    Thanks for your help. I am deleting rows, columns, pics. The folder size
    remains at 25.1 M. I have about half a page of numbers nothing else. I also
    copied this worksheet to my test folder and the folder size went up 25+ Meg.
    I tried compressing the folder on disk size went down about 1/2 meg. Any
    suggestions?
