Hello - have a questions just out of curiosity
Back in 1999 a person who used to work here created a simple excel document that was in essence a list with items on it - cross checked against a date... It was a daily inventory list that got updated 2 times (perhaps more if items came or went) a month. I recently went to revamp the spreadsheets and noticed that the file size was 7mb. This was for roughly 40 rows and 30 colums of text, shading, and bordering (no formulas.) So I created a new spreadsheet and just copied and pasted the rows/columns I needed and the file size dropped to 26k...
My Question is purely informational - how did the file size grow so large? I deleted everything that wasn't needed as a part of the spreadsheet - but the file size didn't drop at all... any thoughts?
