I have a worksheet in excel which has 11 columns and 15
rows.  If I hightlight the columns and rows and paste
this worksheet into a new spreadsheet(values only) the
size of the file is 1.6 meg.  This spreadsheet has some
visual basic code and some macros which someone other
than I wrote.  Everytime the macro runs the file size
increases, yet I cannot determine how to decrease the
size of the file.
