Is there another way to remove rows/columns from a worksheet instead of selecting the respective rows/columns and hiding them?
Thx.

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

You can select the row or column and hit Ctrl-- (Ctrl and Minus sign) to delete the row or column entirely.
Ctrl-+ will insert a row/column above/left of the Row/column you have selected.

Thanks John, another question:

How about it you don't want a new row/column to be added after you delete one. For example, you only want 150 rows and 150 columns visible in the worksheet. Again, I would want to delete the extra columns or rows, not hide.

Thanks,
