What is Excel

When working in Excel, some tables reach quite impressive size. This leads to the fact that the size of the document increases, sometimes reaching even ten megabytes or more. The increase in the weight of an Excel workbook leads not only to an increase in the space it occupies on the hard disk, but, more importantly, to a slowdown in the speed of execution of various actions and processes in it. Simply put, when working with such a document, Excel starts to slow down. Therefore, the issue of optimizing and reducing the size of such books becomes relevant.

How Excel compression works

It is necessary to get rid of the unnecessary file size when there are brakes in the work in Excel file. There are only five main reasons to pay attention to when the file size increases dramatically or when working with it is noticeable - the use of unused cells on the sheet, excessive formatting of rows or columns, many hidden images in the file, the use of array formulas and hidden unnecessary sheets. Using unused cells on the sheet is easy - place the cursor in a document cell and press CTRL + SHIFT + END. Thus, you will see the range that Excel operates in its work. If the number of cells greatly exceeds the real range, then, of course, this greatly affects both the size and the performance of the file.
