I have an Excel file of 1 worksheet, containing data in about 20 rows by 20
columns, which is 310 kB ! I noticed copying the range of cells A3:E7 and
pasting it doubles the file size, but I cannot find anything wrong in those
cells. I tried the following:
1) If I copy all worksheet and paste it in a new worksheet file, the new
file size is the same, > 300kB
2) If I copy and paste all the data column by column, the new file size is
16 kB !
3) If I copy all worksheet and paste values only, the new file size is 14 kB
4) If I delete all the data and the cell formats in the original worksheet,
I still get a large size of > 300 kB !
This is weird. I have nothing in the worksheet, no hidden worksheet, and I
really deleted the rows and columns by selecting them and pressing DELETE.
When I press CTRL-END, the cursor stays at cell A1.
Please help me understand this !
