Hello,

I'm relatively new to VBA. Sometimes I'll run a macro that has a mistake i it and it messes up my whole worksheet. Undo doesn't work in these cases, and if the sheets has been saved during the macro, I can't just close and reopen the workbook to the last saved place. Is there some sort of equivalent to the SQL transaction in VBA? Something that allows changes to be made and then accepted or rolledback in case of a mistake?

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

I doubt there's anything equivalent to that, but you can probably work around it.
Instead of saving directly, use SaveAs, and tag the file name with a timestamp. This way you get new copies of the workbook which you can inspect after running the macro.
Another way is to simply not save at all, check everything is fine after running then manually save it.
