Excel Used Range and Last Cell STILL Inaccurate

Cell IV65536 is registering as the last used cell in the range, which is obviously wrong for me.  (It's just a few rows and columns of data.)

However, it obviously is making my file HUGE and SLOW!

I've tried deleteing the columns and rows around the data, using the Edit>Clear>All command, and even some VBAs in other solutions to clear up this mess.

BUT, still, nothing works (yes, I saved, closed, and re-opened the file only for it not to work still).

Any other ideas?

I normally Delete (rather than Clear) the rows and columns that lie beyond the data. Since IV65536 is marked as the last cell, make sure that you deletions extend both row-wise and column-wise to that cell.

If that still doesn't work for you, could you post your workbook?
