Delete Empty Rows Quick?

Occasional Visitor

I have a worksheet with thousands of rows and a blank row between each row with data.  Is there a way to remove all those blank rows quickly?  I need to sort by a column and I can't right now.  I assume that is because of the blank rows.

Select the entire sheet (or its used range), then use the Tab key to move to the column you want to sort on, if necessary. You should then be able to sort the sheet, causing the empty rows to move to the bottom.


If without shortcuts - select any column within range, on ribbon Find&Select->Go to Special->Blanks->Ok

All blank cells will be selected. With that Cells->Delete->Delete Sheet Rows

Thank You!!
Just what I needed!!!
