If I use ON ERROR GOTO <some label> in a subrountine, and I have an ON ERROR GOTO 0 at the end of this subroutine, this sub's ON ERROR GOTO 0 does not turn off error handling for the code that called this sub. Right?

on error ... are local to the method that contains them (they have no effect on the caller).

on top of that, they are only effective starting at the line they are executed.

there is no need to have "on error goto 0" on the last line of a method
