or Cells
You can delete Excel data that you no longer need.
When you decide to delete data, you can choose
whether you want to remove the data and keep the
cells or delete the cells entirely. When you delete a
cell’s contents, Excel removes only the data. When
you delete a cell, Excel removes the cell as well as its
contents. The existing cells in your worksheet shift
over to fill any gap in the worksheet structure.
