Isthere a formula that can remove the blank rows from colum L in the attached spreadsheet.

I don't want to use a macro or use any menu options.

The colum I am trying to get the blank rows removed is "L".

A formula can only return a result in the cell it is entered, nothing more.

As stated above, A formula is for calulating a result and can not physically alter the layout of the worksheet. To this you need code.

Why not sort the sheet by a row that has data in it so that the blank rows are lost to the bottom of the list.

Or use a filter and have it not select blanks.

I can't have a bunch of steps bec ause many people will be using the spreadsheet. I want to use formulas to format thew data in such a way that all rows are filled and all blank rows are at the bottom of the report.

Yep as I've said use the sort data option.  You could even write a macro to do it so 1 button click and its done.

There is an easy "manual" method that doesn't need macros or sorting

- Select Column L
- Press F5, Goto Special
- pick "Blanks"
- then delete the entire rows of the selected blank cells

Cheers
