Deletes a row from a worksheet.
The number of rows in a worksheet is unchanged - 1,048,576. When you delete rows, the equivalent number of new rows is automatically added to the end of the worksheet's row collection.
If you need to delete only the cell content or formatting from rows without removing entire rows from the worksheet, use the Clear* methods of the Worksheet object (see the How to: Clear Cells of Content, Formatting, Hyperlinks and Comments example).
This example demonstrates how to remove rows from a worksheet.
- Call the Row.Delete method to delete the current row.
- Call the RowCollection.Remove method of the Worksheet.Rows collection to remove a row at the specified position or delete multiple rows at once.
- To delete a row containing the specified cell or multiple rows containing the specified cell range, use the Worksheet.DeleteCells method with DeleteMode.EntireRow enumeration member passed as a parameter.
When you delete rows from a worksheet, other rows are automatically shifted up.
// Delete the 2nd row from the worksheet. worksheet.Rows.Delete(); // Delete the 3rd row from the worksheet. worksheet.Rows.Remove(2); // Delete three rows from the worksheet starting from the 10th row. worksheet.Rows.Remove(9, 3); // Delete a row that contains the "B2"cell. worksheet.DeleteCells(worksheet.Cells["B2"], DeleteMode.EntireRow);
