Reduce Excel File Size for Free
Introducing our new SuperTool that helps you reduce the size of your Excel files without compromising on the important data you need. Our app is designed to make it easy for you to select the specific rows and columns of your Excel file that you need to keep, and then quickly download a smaller version of the file.
What the tool does to Reduce File Size
The main way this tool reduces file size is it allows you to remove rows and columns. It also can split a large file into many small ones. Finally, this tool removes formatting and formulas, keeping your data in tact, but not the fancy formatting (AKA as clutter)!
Two Primary Ways to Reduce File Size
- Include fewer data. Do this by deleting rows and columns.
- Split the large file into multiple smaller files. You can accomplish this by entering a value for Max Rows per file. This will split your input file into multiple smaller ones, with each file only having the max rows you set. The entire new set of XLSX files will be downloaded as a ZIP archive, making it even smaller! New feature as of 2023: The splitter adds the header row of the original data to each separate file -- this helps keep track of everything!
Reduce CSV File Size
This tool also works with comma-separated-value or CSV files. Just upload, select rows and columns, and download as an Excel file.

Why Reduce Excel File Size?
Reducing the size of Excel files is important for several reasons. Firstly, large Excel files can take up a lot of space on your computer, which can slow down your device and make it difficult to manage your files. This can be especially problematic if you are working with multiple large files or if you have limited storage space on your device.
Secondly, large Excel files can be slow to open, save, and work with, which can be frustrating and time-consuming. This can be a major problem if you need to work with the data quickly or if you need to share the file with others.
Thirdly, large Excel files can be a security risk. They are more likely to be corrupted, and in case of security breaches, they can expose sensitive information.
Moreover, large Excel files can be a problem when trying to share them with others. They can be too large to send via email, and they may take a long time to upload or download.
Finally, Excel files are often used for data analysis and visualization, and large files with unnecessary data can cause confusion and make it harder to find important insights.
In conclusion, reducing the size of Excel files is important because it helps to free up storage space, speeds up work processes, enhance security, and make it easier to share and analyze data. By using our app, you can easily select the specific rows and columns of your Excel file that you need to keep, and then quickly download a smaller version of the file.
