Deleting Datasheet Rows or Columns

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated October 18, 2016)

The graphs created by Microsoft Graph are based on data contained in a simple spreadsheet called a datasheet. Microsoft Graph displays this data in row-and-column format. If you want to delete any rows or columns in the spreadsheet, follow these steps:

  1. In the datasheet, select the row or column you want to delete. Do this by clicking on the control cell for the row or column. The control cell is the leftmost cell (for rows) or top cell (for columns).
  2. Choose Delete from the Edit menu.
