Excel/size of individual worksheets
QUESTION: Hi Tom
I am trying to find out the size of individual worksheets in a work book. The workbook in question has many worksheets.
Could you tell me the best way to do this?
Thanks in advance
ANSWER: Christopher Mitchell,
If you mean manually, you can hit F5 to get the goto dialog and then select Special and on the next dialog, choose "Last Cell" and click OK or do Ctrl+END.
that it the lower right corner of the rectangular block of cells that for which Excel is maintaining information about. The cells below and to the right are virtual - you can see them draw, but excel does not store information about them. Many times this will not be the last cell that contains data.
Or you could write a macro. If you want a macro you would have to describe specifically what behavior you would want and what you mean by size.

QUESTION: Hi Tom
Thank you for your time on this one. If a macro can be written I would like it to to scan a workbook and report the individual size, in MB,of each worksheet.
Once again, thanks in advance
There is no support for that unless you want each worksheet copied to a single sheet workbook and save the new workbook as a file using the sheet name. Then you could look and see how big that file is but that would only be an approximation I would think.
