HOW DO FIND OUT THE SIZE OF EACH WORKSHEET WITHIN A WORKBOOK
A 10MB file for Excel isn't very large, It is just Large. Excel often makes
workbooks larger than necessary. Sometimes making a small change will cause excel to grow from a 1 MB file to a 10 MB file. It is difficult to return it back to a smaller file when you have a lot of formulas. I been successful in returning a workbook to a smaller size by copying each sheet one at a time to a new workbook. This won't work if you have a lot of formulas that reference multiple worksheets. The key is what is really your problem. Is your problem that the workbook is slow or take a long time to open and close? You can turn automatic updating off to speed up the entering of a workbook. You can convert some of your formulars to macros which will speed up operations. I don't think that finding the SIZE of the worksheets will really solve any problems.

HOW DO FIND OUT THE SIZE OF EACH WORKSHEET WITHIN A WORKBOOK
You can find out the size of each worksheet by deleting a worksheet and
saving the workbook using a different name. Do this in turn until you only have 1 worksheet left. The difference in the file size gives you the size of the worksheet you just deleted. Note that the disk size of a worksheet does not neccessarily correspond well to the memory used by that worksheet. But I agree with Joel that the size of a worksheet is not usually the problem, but calculation time and memory is.

HOW DO FIND OUT THE SIZE OF EACH WORKSHEET WITHIN A WORKBOOK
You could copy each worksheet to a new workbook (each one to a separate
workbook), save those workbooks, then use windows explorer to look at the size of those new workbooks. keyson2004 wrote: > > I have a very large wotkbook 10MB and want to find out how I can reduce it > and also find out the size of each worksheet within the workbook to see if > there is anything I can do to reduce the size of each worksheet.

I have had this problem. A common cause of a bloated workbook is the creation of a lot of empty rows at the bottom of one sheet. For example a reformat that selects all 100,000+ rows in a column might do this. My solution: Go to each worksheet. Go to the last desired row (you can even add a buffer. Select all cells or all rows beneath that and delete the rows. Often when you get to the offending sheet you get a popup warning that there is not enough memory, but you can continue as long as you agree that the "undo" won't be possible. In a recent case after I cleaned up the offending worksheet, my file shrank from 40MB to 0.276MB (an excel 2007 file). This was much faster than trying to keep resaving the 40MB file after a sheet is deleted.
