Excel Bloat

By ljackson.desoto ·
I have an excel spreadsheet that gets "bloated" and is currently over 5M. It is a pretty basic spreadsheet and I have read articles and heard about this happening, but cannot remember how to reduce the file size back down to a more normal size. I have clear contents on all empty cells on all tabs and that doesn't seem to help. Any ideas or resources to direct me to? Thank You.

Export the workbook as an HTML file, open this saved HTML file and save it to the XLS format.

If the file is still too large, load the original file try the suggestions at the following URL
