IDEA: Delete extra Sheet2 and Sheet3 from Excel workbook
« on: October 27, 2011, 05:40 AM »
I have lot of old excel sheet which has sheet2 & sheet3 as blank/empty/unused.
I am searching for code which could delete these sheets safely once they are verified that they don't have any data. Being non-programmer I am not able to write code.

I want to scan all the folders on my drive, pick each excel file and delete sheet2 and sheet3 after verification.

I just found this set of Excel utilities the other day.  Haven't had a chance to try them out yet but there is one that deletes blank worksheets.  Whether it's by file or folder not sure.

This link takes you to the Sheets ยป Remove all empty worksheets description page.
ASAPUtilities for Excel

They have a free version for home/students/charity and a business version for $49 US.
Either way there is a trial you could give a try.
