I have notice that attempting to undo modifications (line insertions / deletions etc) done by VBA script is not possible.

Is it any way to make it possible???

Thanks so much

Not especially but you can save a copy of the workbook first and revert that way

It is possible, but you have to code it yourself (or do something like Chris suggested):

Note by not especially what I mean is you can create code that undoes the activities for example if you modify a range of cells in code then first save the workbook, change the cells in code, do something else as much as appropriate, finally to undo the cell edits, copy the data from the copy back into the original book.

Now the cell edits are undone but the other changes have been retained.  Obviously though any undo has to be specifically coded for this approach.

Interestingly rory's link is pretty much the exact scenario I outlined and therefore helps authenticate the situation.
