1 thought on “Delete Multiple Rows of data”

  1. I have 11 columns of data that spans close 500K rows. I want to delete multiple rows at different row numbers in this dataset. I have a column that uniquely identifies the rows I want to delete. I used that to filter out the rows I want to keep and then hit delete rows but it takes like close to 10-15 mins. Is there a faster way to delete those rows? Ton of thanks for sharing your knowledge and making life easier for people like us.
