Excel VBA? Delete Columns

I have a worksheet which is 150 columns by 22,000 rows. I know that some columns have never been used, but Size constrains my checking and deleting of the unused columns. Is there a way that I can test to see if a column has no values and then delete it, or all of them?

I'm assuming that each column has a heading. Is that right? So a column with a heading but 21,999 empty cells beneath it should be deleted?

That is correct. I should have mentioned that.

Hi,

pls try

Sub macro()

For Idx = Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column To 1 Step -1
    If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Cells(2, Idx).Resize(22000, 1)) = 0 Then
        Cells(2, Idx).EntireColumn.Delete
    End If
Next
End Sub

Open in new window
