Deleting mega-rows

Occasional Contributor

I have an excel spreadsheet that has data in the first two pages based on my sheet size, etc.  When I go to print the file, the print screen shows that I have 133 pages to print!  Well that just ain't so.  How can I delete the lower 131 pages?  I tried to do them by highlighting the rows or going to the bottom and dragging the solid blue line up but that is way too slow.  Even If I could delete 30 rows, they would show back up when I went to print them again.  Something is off with either the formatting or the gremlins got me again!

First, back up your file in case you inadvertently delete something you need.

You could try selecting an entire empty row just below your actual data, then hit Ctrl+Shift+Down Arrow, then on the Home tab click Clear/Clear All. Same thing with the columns, but using Ctrl+Shift+Right Arrow. Then save the file.
