Did not work well with multiple tabs and sheets. In process of constantly refreshing my screen to no avail. Lots of potential for smaller sheet work, but not at the level I need it.

needed this to delete all the empty cells in a selected column and it worked perfectly. Saved me a lot of time.

Works great for single use. Can you auto hide and unhide rows as data is added?

Did you get this answered? Dying to find a way to have empty rows deleted from a referenced array that sometimes has many rows full and sometimes none....
