I have a shared 97-2003 Excel Workbook ( I am using Excel 2010). All of sudden several rows are "hidden".

When viewng the row numbers, they skip

67
68
85
86

I have:
1) Select unhide all rows  -  no luck
2) Select all rows and did row height - no luck
3) Select all rows and did auto height - no luck

What does work:
1) If I put my cursor right on the top of row 85, it changes to double bars (height adjustment) and I can pull down row 84. Then go to top of 84, do the same for 83.

These "hidden" rows are spread out throughout the worksheet, I would like a command to correct this.

Thanks.

Check to be sure there isn't a filter set.  Data/Filter and see if show all is selected

Something like this?
Sub ResetRows()
    For Each r In ActiveSheet.UsedRange
        r.RowHeight = 15
    Next
End Sub

You can do it in two steps and you have the menu items to complete it.  If you'd like a macro, just ask, but its not really needed.

See this link:  http://www.ehow.com/how_4445648_autofit-column-width-excel.html

Select all cells (top left of sheet), go to format menu, and select autofit options

This macro will reset all cells HEIGHT and WIDTH to the standard height and width in all sheets in a given workbook.
Sub AutoFitAll()
Dim mySheet As Worksheet

    For Each mySheet In Application.Worksheets
        Cells.ColumnWidth = 8.43
        Cells.RowHeight = 15
    Next mySheet
    
End Sub

Open in new window

Cheers,

Ahh yes- this macro will not only reset all HEIGHT and WIDTH, but turn off any filtering, so nothing should be hidden.
 
Sub AutoFitAll()
Dim mySheet As Worksheet

    For Each mySheet In Application.Worksheets
        Cells.ColumnWidth = 8.43
        Cells.RowHeight = 15
        mySheet.AutoFilterMode = False
    Next mySheet
    
End Sub
