Deleting Every X Rows in Excel

Deleting every X rows in Excel can be a tedious and time-consuming task, especially if you have a large dataset. However, there are a few ways that you can make this process easier and faster. Here are some tips:

  • Use the Find and Select feature to quickly select the rows that you want to delete. To do this, go to the Home tab and click on Find & Select. Then, click on Go To. In the Go To dialog box, type in the row number that you want to start deleting at. For example, if you want to delete every 10th row, you would type in 10. Then, click on the OK button.
  • Once the rows are selected, you can press the

(or use the keyboard shortcut) to delete them.
  • If you want to delete every other row, you can use the Data > Filter feature. First, select all of the data that you want to filter. Then, go to the Data tab and click on Filter. In the drop-down menu next to the column that you want to filter by, choose (Blanks). This will hide all of the rows that have data in that column. Then, simply delete all of the visible rows.
  • You can also use a macro to delete every X number of rows. To do this, first select all of the data that you want to include in your macro. Then, go to the Record Macro. In the Record Macro dialog box, give your macro a name and description. Then, click on the "Use Relative References". This will ensure that your macro will work even if your data is rearranged. Finally, click on the "OK" button. Now, simply delete every X number of rows starting from the first row.
