Is there some sort of formula that deletes blank lines in between data. I'm pulling in data from another spreadsheet, and there are blank lines in between them.

Thanks!

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

A quick method is to use autofilter...filter for blanks, then select the rows and delete.

It might be a good idea to select the data area yourself, then click
Data | Filter | Autofilter

Regards.

Nota bene:
Since autofilter filters the column...pick a column to filter for blanks such that "when this cell is blank, the whole row is blank".
