At times, when dealing with an Excel workbook which consists of a great amount of worksheets, you may want to get the data size of each worksheet. However, there is not a native feature for this requirement. So, you need to use some workarounds, such as the following Method 1. Or you can use the much smarter Method 2 to get all worksheets’ data sizes in bulk.
Method 1: Get Worksheet Data Size One by One Manually
- At first, open the specific Excel workbook.
- Then, copy the contents of an Excel worksheet.
- Next, create a new workbook and paste the copied worksheet into Sheet 1.
- Later, save the new workbook to a Windows folder.
- Lastly, you can check the new workbook’s data size, equal to the worksheet’s data size, in Windows Explorer, as shown in the following screenshot.
- Now, you can use this way to get the data sizes of other worksheets one by one.
Method 2: Batch Get the Data Sizes of All Worksheets via VBA
- To begin with, open the Excel VBA editor according to “How to Run VBA Code in Your Excel“.
- Then, put the following code into a project or module.
Sub GetEachWorksheetSize() Dim strTargetSheetName As String Dim strTempWorkbook As String Dim objTargetWorksheet As Worksheet Dim objWorksheet As Worksheet Dim objRange As Range Dim i As Long Dim nLastEmptyRow As Integer strTargetSheetName = "Sheet Sizes" strTempWorkbook = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\Temp Workbook.xls" With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add(Before:=Application.Worksheets(1)) .Name = strTargetSheetName .Cells(1, 1) = "Sheet" .Cells(1, 1).Font.Size = 14 .Cells(1, 1).Font.Bold = True .Cells(1, 2) = "Size" .Cells(1, 2).Font.Size = 14 .Cells(1, 2).Font.Bold = True End With Set objTargetWorksheet = Application.Worksheets(strTargetSheetName) For Each objWorksheet In Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets If objWorksheet.Name <> strTargetSheetName Then objWorksheet.Copy Application.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs strTempWorkbook Application.ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False nLastEmptyRow = objTargetWorksheet.Range("A" & objTargetWorksheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1 With objTargetWorksheet .Cells(nLastEmptyRow, 1) = objWorksheet.Name .Cells(nLastEmptyRow, 2) = FileLen(strTempWorkbook) End With Kill strTempWorkbook End If Next End Sub
- After that, press “F5” to run this macro right away.
- Eventually, after macro finishes, back to the workbook.
- You’ll see a new worksheet at the very beginning, which contains the size of each worksheet, like the following image.
|Method 1||Easy to operate||Too troublesome if there are too many worksheets in the current workbook|
|Method 2||Easy and convenient no matter how many worksheets exist in the workbook||Perhaps the above VBA code is a bit incomprehensible for newbies|
