There are a lot of tutorials on the net on how to delete rows when a cell is empty....However, I don't want that. I need to delete rows (in bulk) only if the whole row has no data in it. How can I do this?  Even if I have to step through a "Find" window, that will work, but I'd prefer to do it in one step if possible.

Is it too much manual work to just sort the rows so that the empty rows appear at the top or the bottom, then delete in bulk? If you have multiple columns, you could sort by all of them in succession so that all the completely blank rows appear at the bottom.
