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

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

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,
